English Composition

This course is part of Global Freshman Academy (GFA), which means you can earn transferable ASU credit toward your college degree.

Language, and the ability to communicate effectively are critical skills in the global economy. Writing and composition are vital to communicating your ideas clearly.

This introductory writing course will help you develop and express ideas effectively for a variety of purposes, audiences and occasions.

During the course, you will complete several major written projects, along with a reflection for each project. For each project, you can decide what level of technology you wish to use.

If you wish to earn university credit for the course we will ask you to complete a portfolio in which you demonstrate what you have learned. Specifically, you will address what you have learned in the course and provide evidence that you have acquired the skills and knowledge taught during the course. This is a 3-credit hour course at Arizona State University (ENG 101 First-Year Composition). It is strongly encouraged that you consult with your institution of choice to determine how these credits will be applied to their degree requirements prior to transferring the credit.

Student Testimonials

“Excellent content and structure. This is a composition course, then learners are expected to write a lot. What I like about the activities is the methodology since participants are invited to reflect a lot, revise, correct, etc., exactly what writers do in real life. In short, there are demanding but rewarding assignments, lectures are high quality and help students, in my opinion, to understand the topics easily. The instructors are nice and care about learners' challenges.”

“I'm Aziz from Morocco. I always wanted to develop my writing skills especially academic writing where I still have some issues. And I believe that this course is the perfect one for me to attain that goal. Thank you edX and Arizona state university for this incredible learning opportunity and happy learning for every one enrolled in the MOOC.” -
