This course builds upon the fundamental research skills acquired in ENGL120W: College Composition. Students learn advanced research-writing techniques and effective rhetorical strategies to be used within disciplines and across the curriculum. Through analysis, evaluation, research, and persuasion, students become advanced academic research writers. Using peer-reviewed, scholarly journals, non-fiction texts, primary and secondary sources, and more, students develop advanced competence in the art of rhetoric and argumentation. Unlike ENGL120W, which teaches MLA, ENGL235W teaches APA, a documentation style required for many degree programs. This course is highly recommended for students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree.  (Prerequisite: ENGL120W)
