Writing 200-Level Courses


Writing for Transfer Students

WRIT212, a writing course for transfer students, addresses argumentative writing in academic contexts. This course emphasizes research-driven writing and is in keeping with Binghamton University's commitment to writing as central to academic inquiry. The course treats writing and research as a process, emphasizes revision, and gives students an opportunity to investigate how to write research-driven texts in disciplines that interest them. Students will learn how to manage projects, conduct academic research, evaluate evidence, and analyze arguments. They will learn to use rhetorical analysis as a way to identify what is required to write effectively in different contexts. Through a process of practice, observation and reflection, students will also learn how to plan and deliver effective presentations.
