ENG-3590: Academic Research Writing Methods and Techniques

This course reviews essay writing conventions and focuses on strategies of academic writing, analysis, argument, with a close examination of research techniques and methods. The quality of the research and how we conduct research is a major concern in the age of “fake news.” Students will analyze texts and research from a variety of disciplines; they will also learn various methods and techniques of research to help them construct well-researched and engaging works. Students will learn how to conduct and include highly effective research while simultaneously exercising their own authentic voice and infusing it into their academic writing. Students will employ various types of research in their paper as they examine their community of Southern California through a lens of empowerment. Students will use research to explore local people, places, or organizations dedicated to empowering underserved communities and ask themselves what they really understand about the history, efficacy, and mission of the people they investigate.
