Current Issues: Immigration, Generation Y, Climate Change
FYS 013, CRN 6484
The goals of this FYS are for you to develop skills in written and oral communication. As a result, you should become a communicator better able to make effective decisions in your own academic life and work. Throughout the course, we will spend considerable time discussing writing-related issues, including clarity, cohesion, style, and revision. You will learn how to summarize, analyze, and evaluate various types of texts and then use that knowledge in three kinds of assignments: rhetorical analysis (with summary), visual analysis, exploratory/persuasive texts (with documented research).
