INTS 103: Writing for Academic Success

The purpose of this course is to help students become stronger writers. To the end of sculpting effective essays, the course will teach students the principles of good reading; essay structure; editing and revision; and the effective use of rhetoric. The course proceeds upon the premise that clear writing is rooted in sound grammar, and that even analysis cannot properly proceed without this basis. For this reason, the course will necessarily include instruction in grammar.
