Welcome to the Lincoln University
COMPOSITION PROGRAM AND STUDENT WRITING PAGE
This page provides information about our
four Composition courses, English 098, 099, 101, and 102, and reflects changes in course numbering.
This page also, more importantly, highlights excellent writing
from Lincoln University students. Further information about English Department
courses and requirements for English majors can be found at the Lincoln English Department Homepage.
Several useful search engines and other helpful web sites are
linked to Web Resources. Comments
are always welcome.
Please email the Freshman Composition Program Director, Dr. Jeff Hoogeveen.
English 101 and 102 are Lincoln University general education
requirements. Placement into Composition courses is based upon your ACT
score. Certain ACT scores require an incoming student to take either English
098 or 099, before taking English 101 and 102. After completion of English
102, and before graduation (and before enrolling in senior seminars; see
your advisor for more information), students must take the Lincoln University
Writing Proficiency Exam (WPE).
Course guidelines for English 098-102 are posted below.
