Papers at Regent must demonstrate graduate school level competence in structure, argument, and style. This course, which is open to all Regent students, addresses the fact that many students, including those with technical (rather than arts) backgrounds, and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students, may need to restore or improve their skills. The goal is not only to remove those errors that cause frustration for both professor and student, but also to establish a process that transforms the writing of a paper into a deeper way of learning. The course will include tours of the Regent and UBC main libraries. Attendance is voluntary, though the Admissions Ofﬁce and faculty may require certain students to attend.
This is a non-credit course. We will meet Friday, Sept 14, from 1:00–4:00 pm, and on Saturday, Sept 15, from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. The cost for the course is $35.
