PRACTICAL RESEARCH WRITING
(4 credit hours)
Fall/Winter/Spring | Prerequisites: EN152
The third in the freshman composition sequence. Students pose questions and use research to help develop and justify answers. Students evaluate the quality and reliability of data found in different sources, and use critical thinking to draw inferences, generate ideas, and propose solutions to problems. Students learn about resources provided by professional organizations, and about scholarly journals in their major; students use research databases, produce an annotated bibliography using citation style appropriate to their major (APA, IEEE, MLA), a literature review, and at least one research paper.
