This class is an advanced writing-intensive course in which students learn about the nature of the academic essay in American university settings; it is intended for students whose language of nurture is not English. Through a study of cultural rhetorics, students become acclimated to the more advanced academic environments they will encounter in American universities and learn the conventions of the writing they will be asked to perform in their major courses, for example, research standards demanded by US professors, including appropriate selection and integration of sources into a student's own writing and navigation of an academic library.
