English 200

What is English 200?

The final course in the composition sequence acts as the capstone course for the student’s writing instruction, focuses on the multiple genres and writing practices of disciplines and fields of study across and beyond the university. 

In English 200, students will acquire and develop the ability to:

  • Write in specialized genres for specific audiences
  • Compare and contrast how different communities, including academic
    discourse communities, discuss and respond to a similar topic or issue
  • Describe how genres shape reading, writing, and research
  • Reflect on transferring knowledge about genre and composition to writing in
    other contexts

Students must successfully complete English 200 with a grade of “C” or higher.
