The Art of the Essay

School of Undergraduate Studies BIS 1504 3.00

Satisfies expository writing requirement. This course focuses on essays, that literary form so wide-ranging and elastic that it attracts not only nonfiction writers, but also fiction writers, poets, scientists, physicians, and so many others. We will read and write a wide variety of essays, including personal, lyrical, historical, critical, and experimental essays, and we will examine the role of research in essay writing. We will also explore how the essay-creating process presents the opportunity for deep reflection and how that reflection contributes to an essay’s ability to insightfully engage readers. BIS student
