Diversity and Disciplinary Knowledge

The Composition Program at George Mason University serves approximately 8,000 students a year on five campuses 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.
