WSC 110 - Advanced Essay Writing: Beyond the Term Paper

Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
This course explores the essay in detail. Essays can be deeply personal or highly controversial, conversational or formal; they often combine narrative with argument and images with words. The course begins with a brief survey of invention practices: how do writers discover and develop an idea? how does this idea move to the page? how do audience and genre influence this movement? During the semester, the class will read exploratory, narrative, and research-based essays, using each form as a model for thinking and writing in academic and popular contexts. Throughout the semester, we will share, discuss, and assess student work in small-group and full-class forums.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
WSC 1 . WSC 110 may substitute for WSC 2  with permission of the departmental chairperson. (Formerly, Advanced Essay Writing.)
