The Composition Program at GMU serves over 10,000 students a year in classes taught by approximately 100 faculty at campuses in Northern Virginia and Mason Korea in Songdo, South Korea via three courses: English 100, English 101, and English 302. 

In all three courses, students are encouraged to see writing as a social, imaginative, inquiry-based recursive action. Writers create texts in a range of genres that attend to particular rhetorical and academic contexts and that meet the expectations of particular audiences.
