FWIS 100 Fundamentals of Academic Communication
Based on composition exam results, students who need additional time and preparation in advanced academic reading and writing in order to succeed in a FWIS are required to complete FWIS 100 Fundamentals of Academic Communication.
This course will provide an introduction to the expectations of academic readers as well as practice with the rhetorical and linguistic structures common to academic writing. Students will also review grammatical points relevant to the course material and assignments and learn to self-edit their own work. Each section of FWIS 100 explores a different topic through readings, discussions and other media. FWIS 100 course descriptions can be found here.
All students taking FWIS 100 will enroll in their required FWIS course during the spring semester. FWIS 100 alone does not satisfy the Writing and Communication Requirement; permission is required to register.
Designed to prepare students who need more time and practice in reading and writing to meet the more advanced communication demands of an FWIS, this course will provide an introduction to the expectations of academic readers as well as practice with the rhetorical and linguistic structures common to academic writing. This course does not fulfill the Composition Requirement. Permission is required to register.
