General Course Objectives
This course meets six of the seven learning outcomes of the General Education curriculum’s Communication requirement. The purpose of the Communications requirement is to prepare students to effectively communicate information, thoughts, and viewpoints through oral, written, and graphic forms of expression.
The outcomes listed below for ENGL 110 are observed in all sections. Instructors pursue these requirements through a variety of approaches. Individual instructor syllabi, which document how these outcomes are met, are on file in the English department office.
Students in all sections of ENGL 110 will demonstrate the ability to:
Individual instructors provide students with grading rubrics, and individual syllabi specify the weighting of each assignment.
All university and department policies will apply (e.g., individual course syllabus, stated attendance policy, non-discriminatory policy, academic integrity statement, meeting final exams).
Any student eligible for and requesting reasonable accommodations due to a disability is required to provide a letter of accommodation from the Student Success Center.
