Writing and Speaking

Students WritingDescription

English - The Core Writing program includes four courses that count toward the Writing & Speaking requirement in UNM’s Core Curriculum.  English 101 and English 102 help students develop the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills they will need for success in college and in professional contexts. Students, who take English 219, Technical and Professional Writing, create documents oriented to workplace uses while those in English 220, Expository Writing, develop skills for writing in multiple contexts. All four courses share a common core of outcome goals, with each course building on the outcomes of the previous one.

Communication & Journalism - Currently, we are focusing on C&J Public Speaking 130, as this is a core requirement for graduation. It is a performance course that deals with the analysis, preparation and presentation of speeches.

Optional courses offered annually:

  • English 150, Study of Literature
  • English 224, Intro to Creative Writing
  • English 293, Literary Production HOWL

Chair: Laura Lynch
