Our composition courses serve the interests of the entire MU academic community: students use writing skills in all their other courses as well as throughout their careers and lives,
All composition courses require instruction on such elements of writing and thinking as:
- rhetorical modes
- writing process
Courses are all taught by experienced writing teachers. Additionally, the three courses that make up the Composition curriculum—ENG 0090, Basic Writing Skills; ENG 1112, Composition I; and ENG 3313, Composition II—are designed to act as incremental stepping stones that help students ontinue to grow as writers and thinkers throughout their undergraduate years.
Composition outcomes and methods are designed for class limits of twenty-five students in ENG 1112 and ENG 3313, and twenty students in ENG 0090. These courses are taught by permanent English faculty who have no more than a two course composition load per semester or by temporary English faculty who have no more than a three course composition load per semester.
