The Department of Literacies and Composition teaches two different courses, ENGH-0890 and ENGH-1005. Speak to your adviser to determine which course is the right place for you to start.

The English 0890 and 1005 series offer students the opportunity to write in multiple contexts for multiple audiences. These are portfolio-based courses, which emphasize that writing is a process, and grades are weighted towards students’ best work. These courses are also recursive, meaning the concepts presented build on and circle back to each other.

English 1005 also builds on those concepts, and students expand their understanding of the rhetorical nature of writing, multiple literacies, and writing as an assemblage. By gaining these understandings, students will be able to confidently navigate the diverse work of their college experience.
