Course description

ACAD 1601 allows students to cultivate skill sets for effective academic writing at the intermediate level. With an emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving through the writing process, students learn to discern, respond to, and write logical, compelling academic questions in clear, coherent prose. Readings, skill-specific writing assignments, writing workshops, seminars in information literacy, and instructor feedback provide a structure for the course, as students practice foundational skills in academic inquiry, argumentation, expression, research, and documentation. This course may count towards the Humanities breadth requirement.
