In addition to those objectives required of all General Studies courses, students will:

  1. demonstrate the ability to form and support a coherent position on an issue,
  2. demonstrate the ability to write and speak in a formal manner appropriate to the audience,
  3. demonstrate the ability to read, speak, and write "expressive" as well as "transactional" language i.e., to develop and understand the role of voice in communication as well as the message itself.
