Description
Writing in a Research University is designed for undergraduate (ideally at the sophomore or junior level) who have chosen a major and completed core requirements. The class seeks to develop and employ critical thinking, inquiry and analysis, written communication and teamwork. Analytical techniques practiced and employed include reduction, synthesis, dialectical reasoning, an systems thinking among other. Central to the course is the understanding of forms and structures found across academic disciplines and audiences from various background. Student writers will engage in an extensive written research project that makes an original contribution to their field. For many, this project lays the foundation for (and may become) the Honors Thesis.
