English Composition (EC) is a compulsory course designed to teach you how to write a critical essay in English. Besides examining the theoretical aspect of academic writing, it is designed as a workshop where you will practice essay-writing using the techniques of literary analysis that you have learnt in ILA.


In the fall semester the focus is on the structure (argument, paragraphs, introduction, conclusion) and style (language and conventions) of the critical essay. In the spring semester the focus is on research skills, the use of secondary sources, and bibliographical conventions.


The validation of this module (10 credits) is based on three essays (plus at least one rewrite), a bibliographical exercise, and class participation.
