COMP 102 Composition Fundamentals II

Division of Liberal Arts

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

A continuation of COMP*101, COMP*102 is the second part of a year-long course that builds on and develops the writing and reading processes that lead to argumentation. This course emphasizes composition skills necessary for producing an inquiry-based research paper. The course also emphasizes mastering various technical aspects of writing, including structuring essays and deploying grammar to achieve clarity. The independent written research project prompts students to refine composition skills introduced in COMP*101 (describing, summarizing, analyzing, applying, and synthesizing, for example) to develop an argument. To illustrate the importance of context in the research process, the curriculum explores a specific theme. Students continue to explore how to access and assess research source materials. As this course is six hours per week, one-to-one time with the instructor is built into the class, so students can work on individual reading and writing issues.
