This course provides a survey of the major movements and representative authors in American Literature from the late 19th century through the modern era, including the study of such authors as Dickinson, Mark Twain, Crane, Frost, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner. Because this course may be taken as an alternative to English Composition II, students will be expected to demonstrate competency in writing and research by producing work which is not only grammatically and mechanically correct but which displays effective sentence structure and organization, precise diction, appropriate use of research materials, and proper MLA documentation. This course satisfies the Gordon Rule writing requirement and is an alternative to ENC 1102. A grade of “C” or higher must be attained.
ENC 1101 (completed with a grade of “C” or higher).
