ENGL498 - Senior Seminar in English


The culminating point of an undergraduate’s career, this senior course offers students the rhetorical knowledge and research practices needed to write and to research successfully in any discourse community within which they might find themselves—as students, professionals, and citizens. While university students are projected to make several career changes within their working lifetimes, these transitions and the challenges of their complex personal and public lives will require critical thinking skills and informed flexibility. This course is designed to polish students’ writing, analytical, and English skills so that they may confidently confront the challenges and demands of specialized research and written communication. According to their affinity, seniors are invited to pursue literary interests in the compositions of this course, and conduct research in other academic or professional areas. This course will provide students with the opportunity to complete an approved academic research exercise that demonstrates knowledge of a selected field of study. Prerequisite: Completion of a minimum of 106 hours towards your program.
