Course Descriptions


ENG 310
Research Writing
3 credits

PRIOR TO FALL 2015, THIS COURSE WAS OFFERED AS ENG 365. This course seeks to develop skills in advanced composition, critical reading, and research: evaluation of sources and incorporating others’ research into student writing. It is designed to improve students’ abilities to create a persuasive argument, and to use outside sources through quoting, paraphrase, summary, and synthesis. Students will use the outside sources to reinforce their own persuasive arguments correctly and effectively. Students will also concentrate on APA style and how it can be used to ensure correct use of sources and academic integrity. Effective Fall 2018, the minimum passing grade is C.

Prerequisite(s): Successful completion of ENG 122 (with a C or higher) or be enrolled in a completion degree that requires ENG 310.
