ENGL 110  - Compos., Lit. & Crit. Thinking at College of San Mateo for Fall 2017 (CRN :  82264)


The English Placement Test is required of all entering freshmen. Students transferring to College of San Mateo with credit in college English will not be required to take the test. They must, however, take the Reading Test if they have not completed English 100 or equivalent with a grade of C or higher. Designed to measure the entrants ability in reading, the mechanics of writing, and composition, the English Placement Test is used (in addition to other information) to determine placement of students in English 100 and other English courses.

The following English courses are credit bearing but not degree applicable, which means that the units count for the purpose of financial aid but not toward the AA/AS degree: 828, 830, 850, 875.


Letter grade. Hours/semester: 48-54 lecture/16-18 by arrangement. Prerequisite(s): ENGL 100 or ENGL 105.

Description: This course is designed to introduce students to the major imaginative genres of poetry, drama, and fiction. Students will write a minimum of eight thousand words of finished prose, employing methods of literary analysis and demonstrating skill in critical thinking. (AA: Area E2b+E2c or E5c, CSU: Area A2 or A3 or C2, UC: Area 1B or 3B) (C-ID ENGL 120)
