The purpose of courses in writing and speaking is to foster the ability to communicate effectively with others, whether in speech or writing. The complexities of the modern world require the ability to think independently and express ideas clearly.

Satisfactory completion of the required writing course sequence, ENG 101 Composition I  and ENG 102 Composition II , will mean a grade of “C” or better in both courses.
