Description

According to the English Department: All sections of English 325 focus on examining and practicing artistic and research-informed essay writing. The term essay refers to shorter works of composition employing stylistic devices from multiple genres of writing in order to develop a point of view aesthetically and intellectually. The course builds on skills from introductory writing courses (e.g., English 124, 125, and 225).

This particular section has two main goals. The first is to get us thinking about the essay form in new ways—as an expressive medium rather than a means to exclusively academic or argumentative ends. The second is to use our discussions of essays to hone our writing abilities. Even if students never write another essay after college, they should leave this class with some prose habits that can help them more broadly—in their professional life, social life, personal life. The overall hope here is that students will come to see their writing as a means to feel around for answers to the questions that dog them about their own experience. The essays we write in this course will be personal, reflective, and maybe a little bit weird.
