English 1102 is the second of two comp classes required for graduation. Students
usually take this course in their second semester here at SPSU. In this course, you’ll
build on the skills you developed in 1101. You will learn active reading and research
strategies and critical writing skills as you interpret, analyze and synthesize ideas
around you. A valuable set of skills in the world of information overload.
So…what exactly will you learn?

Looking for something different?
As an alternative to ENGL 1102, you can choose a Special Topics course. These courses meet all the requirements of a regular 1102 class, except they focus on a particular subject, genre or topic. Perhaps you are interested in writing about sports, digital media, gender, humor, film, food, or more. Join other students who share your interests. Special topics courses are listed in the bulletin so students are aware of the designated sections.
