English for Academic Purposes I: Writing Across Cultures (356:155), or EAP I, is a 4.5-credit first-year writing course for learners of English as an additional language. Students in this course will explore cultural concepts within various texts on cultural studies, sociology, language studies, fiction, poetry, and personal narrative. They will compose a detailed multimodal portrait of the ways an author's identity relates to communication as well as a self-portrait reflecting upon their own personal linguistic and cultural journeys. This course fulfills the AHq Core Requirement. Students successfully completing EAP I (155) continue into EAP II (156).
