College Writing Requirements

To best prepare students to succeed in Rosemont's accelerated adult undergraduate tracks and programs, all of which are writing-intensive, students must fulfill two writing courses: ENG-160 College Writing I and ENG-170 College Writing II, prior to taking any further coursework at Rosemont.

English-160: Composition and Critical Thought

This course provides opportunities to practice the basic writing skills expected of students enrolled in all further courses at Rosemont.

English-170: Writing and Research

This class includes instruction in academic writing, research resources, and the construction of an academic argument. The School of Professional Studies requires all students to use APA style in all written assignments for all undergraduate courses, which is taught in English-170.
