Course Description:

For Transfer Students Only

Rutgers University has challenging standards for reading and writing, beyond the Expos requirement many transfer students have already fulfilled.  Some transfer students come to Rutgers lacking confidence in writing while other transfer students are proficient writers who just need an introduction to research strategies in the Rutgers libraries; whatever your skill level, we recommend  registering for 301: College Writing and Research if you have received WC credit for Expository Writing 101. Don’t miss this chance to set yourself up for academic success at Rutgers!

ENG 01:355:301 College Writing and Research introduces the basics of analysis, drafting, and revision.  The second half of the semester provides a chance to develop an independent inquiry into an area of personal interest. Learn how to effectively research, argue, organize and present your ideas in a class exclusively for transfer students.

301 fulfills Core Writing and Communication Requirements WCd (Disciplines) or WCr (Revision).
