College Writing Program: Florham Campus

The Florham Campus College Writing Program offers four undergraduate composition courses:

  • ENGW 0198: Fundamentals of Writing
  • ENGW 1000: Introduction to Composition
  • ENGW 1001: Composition I: Rhetoric and Inquiry
  • ENGW 1002: Composition II: Research and Argument

Course descriptions are provided below.

All undergraduate composition courses are structured as workshops that focus on strengthening reading skills and practicing a process approach to writing. Students learn to reflect upon what they write, test ideas and conclusions reached, and reshape and revise ideas. They become aware that all writing is contextualized: when we write, we respond to the ideas of others and we adapt what we say to a particular audience. When students can value writing as a heuristic activity, they will become serious writers producing serious work.

The College Writing Program at Florham is a contributing partner to the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives at Ohio State University.
