Course Goal for ELCA 12 & 22

At the Academic Level, the goal of this exit-level course is to prepare undergraduate students for (1) the required First-Year Writing course (UWRT-150), (2) Writing-intensive courses in their major and in general education, and (3) writing assignments found in any university writing course.

At the Advanced Level, the goal of the course is to familiarize students with the conventions of academic discourse so that they can apply these features in their own writing to purposefully express and connect their own ideas, to correctly integrate sources, and to use appropriate academic grammar and vocabulary.
