English 401 urges you “to use writing for academic, professional, and personal goals” and to take on “the intellectual and ethical responsibility to construct meaning—to frame interpretations, to explore multiple perspectives, to defend assertions, and to relate the new to the known.”1   Exploring writing processes, you will develop strategies for “building” your writing across genres and purposes, producing rich, thorough, innovative essays with a confident voice.
