Untitled document
Since the purpose of the course is to afford the student an opportunity to engage in intensive study of a particular topic not covered indepth in other English courses, the SLO's will vary according to the project proposal.

Objectives: Untitled document
Upon completion of this course, a student should be able to:
1.  Discuss intelligibly--orally and in writing --the topic of the

of literary or linguistic theory.
3.  Demonstrate factual knowledge on each of the sub-topics of the course
4.  Demonstrate knowledge of academic library (or other) resources (e.g.

5. Repeating students may choose different topics or emphasis depending on approval of the project.

Topics and Scope
