ENGL2135 Special Topics: English Composition Transfer Curriculum

This class is meant for students who have already taken a 3 semester credit freshman level composition class at another institution. This course assumes the student has already achieved an understanding of writing basics: intro, body, conclusion; organization; outlining; the thesis; etc. Therefore, this class will focus on the research paper; specifically, an argument paper. This paper will be 6-10 pages in length, and will give students the opportunity to demonstrate their writing proficiency, their understanding of research and citation, and their critical thinking and reading skills.
