The purpose of the Freshman Writing Intensive Seminar (FWIS) is to help students develop and hone college-level composition skills through intensive training on all stages of non-fiction expository writing. A small class size, substantial writing load, and sustained instructor’s feedback will teach both the fundamental skills and tools of expository writing. The course will emphasize both interpretive skills/techniques of reading as well as skills in writing and argumentation. Through the intense study of a selected academic topic, students will develop fundamental skills of academic writing.
