Honors Writing Seminar

Designed specifically for students enrolled in the Honors Program, this first-year writing seminar facilitates students development into skilled practitioners of college-level argument through practice, guidance, and collaborative learning. In addition to reading complex texts critically, writing frequently, and completing several major assignments of increasing complexity, students will work with a similar group in a lab setting on the processes of writing. Writing assignments include literary analysis and researched argument essays using sources as wide ranging as literature, visual sources, film, and scholarly articles. Topics or themes for the course vary from year to year. Restricted to students admitted to the Honors Program. WCI, IL
