The Augusta University Composition Program consists of two writing-based courses that equip students with college-level skills in critical thinking, reading, writing, and research.
College Composition I is a writing-based course where students develop skills in analysis and how to use sources to support an argument. Students read and write in a variety of genres, culminating with a major source-based argument paper.
College Composition I Objectives
Students must continue to register for ENGL 1101 each successive semester until they have completed the course with a grade of C or better. Both ENGL 1101 and ENGL 1102 should be completed within the first 30 hours of a student's undergraduate degree program.
College Composition II is a writing-based course where students refine their writing skills through themed courses with in-depth source material around a particular topic. Students read and write in a variety of genres surrounding the theme of the course, and they compose a major academic research paper with independent research. Themes are based on faculty expertise, and students are encouraged to pick themes related to their particular interests. See the most recent course themes, here. To learn about upcoming themes, contact Dr. Cynthia Fields.
College Composition II Objectives
Students who complete ENGL 1101 must enroll in English 1102 no later than the first semester they enroll following completion of ENGL 1101. Students must continue to register for English 1102 each successive semester until they have completed the course with a grade of C or better. Both ENGL 1101 and ENGL 1102 should be completed within the first 30 hours of a student's undergraduate degree program.
