Course Description:
Expository Writing (355:101) is the required writing course for all students at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, and it is usually completed in the first semester. The course is designed to help students learn to read deeply, think critically, and write effectively about complex texts. Learning these skills will prepare students for the writing they will do at the university and in their professional lives.  

Grading Criteria:

All instructors grade students' papers according to the same standards in Expository Writing. We suggest that students refer to this grading criteria throughout the writing and revision processes. Learn more about grading criteria.

Dropping Expository Writing is not possible without a dean's permission.
