Credit Hours:
3

Course Level:
Undergraduate

Semesters Offered:
Fall Spring Summer

Prerequisite: CO150 College Composition

Description: Learning writing strategies for addressing general audiences in Social sciences. CO301C focuses on writing for nonexpert audiences interested in social science content with expectations for polished, professional texts. By non-expert audiences, we mean that students write about their disciplinary knowledge in the social sciences for readers who do not have similar levels of expertise in issues and content in the social sciences. Students in CO301C write about social sciences topics for audiences ranging from children through senior citizens, elementary students to those just entering college, or adults who read mainstream media publications including local and national newspapers, magazines such as The Economist or American History Magazine, or websites such as TheCenterStrikesBack.com and npr.org. To read more about this class, see the Composition Program’s CO301C page.

This course may be taken in fulfillment of the II-B Advanced Writing category of the All University Core Curriculum.
