WRIT 102 (Writing 102) is a theme-based, first-year writing course designed to build on writing skills learned in WRIT 100/101 and develop critical thinking and research skills appropriate for use in academic writing. The course pays special attention to developing argumentative skills, analyzing texts, and synthesizing information into thoughtful, coherent essays and projects. Students enrolled in WRIT 102 will produce papers that are longer than in WRIT 100/101. The course culminates in a final electronic portfolio of the student’s work with a reflective introduction.
