302-MK Course Description
This course will help you to further develop the writing and research skills you learned in English 100/101 and other courses, with a special focus on writing and research in your own major field of study. It will teach you to write with awareness of audience, purpose, and context, and help you to understand how knowledge is created and transmitted through scholarly research in your chosen field. You will have the opportunity to come up with and to refine your own question for scholarly research, to situate this inquiry in an ongoing conversation in your field, and to design a final project that adds new perspectives to the conversation. Overall, this class will help you to find your voice in your discipline and to transfer your learning to a range of different writing situations.
Moreover, at Mason Korea, English 302 is enhanced to better serve the unique needs of GMU-Korea students. It incorporates the research and current best practices in composition instruction for multilingual writers. Lessons and assignments are designed to empower you as you negotiate your entry into your field’s discourse community as a multilingual writer from a non-U.S. educational culture.
