ENG 1110: English Composition I

Self-paced Correspondence

ENG 1110 teaches you how to write elegant, well-structured, and persuasive essays. College writing is about learning how to find your voice, and then ensuring that your readers not only hear you, but also listen to you. This means that you have to use the best and most appropriate language and arguments to encourage your audience to listen and to hear.

This process involves a few steps: You need to know what you want to say, you need to know why it is important, and you need to know how best to write it so your readers will want to read it. This course will help you learn how to make choices, ranging from vocabulary, punctuation, and structure to evidence and strategies for persuasion that will result in essays you are excited to write and are proud of writing.
