RHET 110/1010 - Freshman Writing (3 cr.)

RHET 1010 is designed to help first year students improve their analytical and argumentative skills. This involves reading texts analytically and critically within various disciplines, considering the rhetorical situations in which they are working, organizing and supporting ideas to make a convincing argument while maintaining their voice as writers. This course also provides training in the use and integration of sources, library and online research and fosters a more discriminating attitude to academically acceptable sources. Ultimately, the course provides opportunities for students to develop effective and coherent communication skills.

When Offered
Offered in fall and spring. Summer only for students repeating the course.
RHET 1010 replaces   and   for students beginning in the Freshman Program in fall 2013 and later.
