World Literatures in English
Research and Writing Skills

They produce polished, competent, formal writing, free from distracting errors in mechanics, syntax, and formatting, and in accordance with MLA formatting and citation guidelines.

Through classroom activities and assignments, students demonstrate maturing understanding of what differentiates representative world writers, texts, and cultures from one another; simultaneously, they suggest ways in which individual authors and texts have influenced broadly defined world culture and literature.
Through classroom activities and assignments, students articulate an increased appreciation for their own identities, a preparedness to read the world literature throughout their lives, and a deeper sense of their responsibilities to fellow Latter-day Saints around the world.
