The purpose of composition courses at ETSU is to prepare you to write academic essays, research papers, and other documents while studying at the university. The courses also prepare you for the writing and communication situations you will experience in your work after graduation.
The Department of Literature and Language at ETSU offers two first-year courses devoted to the study of academic composition and research: ENGL 1010 and ENGL 1020. The university requires that you take ENGL 1010 during the first eligible semester you are enrolled at ETSU.
The department also offers a composition lab, ENGL 1011, and honors composition courses, ENGL 1018 and ENGL 1028.
International students can also study English as a second language in ENGL 1006/1007 and ENGL 1008/1009. These courses include labs.
For students who would like to continue their study of academic and professional writing beyond the freshman level, the department offers "Advanced Composition," ENGL 3130 and "Computers, Writing, and Literature," ENGL 3134.
