ENGH 100/101, the first English composition course you take, focuses on writing in ways to help you communicate more fluently, express your ideas more convincingly and think more critically. It encourages you to experiment with language and ideas. It helps prepare you, as a writer, for the demands of college-level courses across the disciplines.
ENGH 100 Composition for Nonnative Speakers of English (4 credit hours) and ENGH 101 Composition (3 credit hours) are equivalent courses. Both fulfill the initial written communication requirement at Mason. If your first language is other than English, you have the option of enrolling in either ENGH 100 or ENGH 101.
