ENGL 150: Academic Research and Writing

This is a first-year course that introduces students to academic research and writing. Each section focuses on a specific topic and explores how knowledge on that topic is produced and communicated in different disciplines. Designed to familiarize students with the methods, motives, and discursive moves of scholarly inquiry and conversation, this course will involve students in reading and critically evaluating peer-reviewed sources, writing in a variety of academic genres, communicating their own research, and reviewing the work of peers. As apprentice scholars, students will be expected to have reading and writing skills appropriate to university-level discourse, and to uphold the standards of academic honesty, including responsible citation practice.
