ENGL 1060 - English Composition for International Students

Arts & Sciences
This course is specifically designed to address the language and cultural needs of English language learners. Students will deepen their understanding of syntax (structure), semantics (meaning), and pragmatics (use) by composing various types of essays, such as argument, analysis, and evaluation. Students will also learn to focus on a writer’s rhetorical situation and the changing ways that a given text’s audience, purpose, and genre determine the best methods and strategies for academic writing. By focusing on the writing process — prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing — this course addresses some of the unique challenges facing English language learners. Additionally, students will further develop their cultural awareness by reading course texts, watching videos, and engaging in class discussions.
