EN 102:  As the second part of a year-long sequence in First Year Writing, this course builds from learning experiences in EN 101, developing knowledge about reading, writing, and researching as rhetorically situated and recursive acts. This part of the sequence adds research project design, execution, and management to the previous emphasis on critical thinking and conventions of academic writing.
