Course Description:

Academic Writing in the United States is a 4.5-credit first-year writing course for learners of English as an additional language. Students in this course will discuss and analyze multimodal texts across a variety of disciplines and engage in writing assignments to develop strategies and skills useful within the conventions of academic writing across disciplines in colleges and universities in the United States. They will create a digital project showcasing their development in critical thinking, rhetorical effectiveness, and understanding of academic writing conventions. Students successfully completing EAP II (156) will continue into either College Writing (101) or College Writing Extended (104).
