UTC English Department’s Composition Program serves undergraduate students across all university degree programs. We help students develop the critical thinking, analysis, and writing skills necessary for academic success.
Composition students learn to synthesize information from multiple texts and perspectives, respond to the needs of diverse audiences, and adapt their writing for different contexts, purposes, and technologies.
English 1010: Rhetoric and Composition I
English 1010 focuses on critical reading and strategies for varying writing style, tone, and form for multiple purposes and audiences. Students learn to compose texts, including academic essays, that clearly assert a claim and support the claim with compelling evidence.
English 1010: Rhetoric and Composition I with Writing Tutorial
An alternative to English 1010, English 1011 provides students with an additional 75-minute tutorial per week to help them achieve the program’s critical reading, analysis, and writing goals.
English 1020: Rhetoric and Composition II
English 1020 helps students build on their reading, analysis, and writing skills to develop complex written arguments based on careful evaluation and synthesis of information from research.
