Writing and Communication

Students take two degree credit-bearing courses (at least 6 credits) including Expository Writing 01:355:101; and one WCd and, in doing so, meet the four goals.

  • Communicate complex ideas effectively, in standard written English, to a general audience.
  • Communicate effectively in modes appropriate to a discipline or area of inquiry. [WCd]
  • Evaluate and critically assess sources and use the conventions of attribution and citation correctly.
  • Analyze and synthesize information and ideas from multiple sources to generate new insights.

Students receiving a score of 4 or above on the AP English composition or literature tests are exempted from Expository Writing 01:355:101, and for such students the writing and communication goals become a one-course requirement: WCd.

SEBS Core courses taught each semester are available to view in the Schedule of Classes.
