UNIV 101 - Academic Reading and Writing for International Students

(4)
UNIV-101 focuses on the reading, writing, and library skills and the ESL language and cultural issues particularly relevant to success in a United States university for non-native speakers of English. This course is designed to prepare the student for the rigors of university-level reading and writing tasks. Students will practice comprehension of challenging university-level texts centering on cultural themes and employ that knowledge in writing essays and research paper. The student will develop the library skills necessary to succeed in a United States university. The course will focus on understanding and applying test-taking strategies based on your reading assignments and class discussions. Aspects of American culture such as values and beliefs, religion, ethnic and racial diversity, and the American family and educational system will be thoroughly explored. UNIV-101 is required of those international students with a TOEFL score below 540 (76 iBT TOEFL) & must be taken during the first semester of undergraduate studies. Typically followed by UC-110 or ENGL-111.  Students who have taken ENGL-100 or ENGL-102 should not enroll in UNIV-101.
