Overview

This course is part of ASU's Professional Writing MicroBachelors program. If you complete the two courses that are part of this program with a passing grade, you can earn transferable credit from one of edX's university credit partners.

Language and the ability to communicate effectively are critical skills in the global economy and in our daily social exchanges, but they are also essential to gaining a deeper understanding of who we are.

This introductory writing course will help you develop and express ideas effectively for a variety of personal and professional purposes, audiences, and occasions.

During the course, you will complete several major writing projects, keep a regular writer's journal, and maintain a writer's website, where you will showcase your work and demonstrate what you have learned. If you wish to earn university credit, we will ask you to complete all assignments.

Pilar R
by Pilar completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
Excellent content and structure. This is a composition course, then learners are expected to write a lot. What I like about the activities is the methodology since participants are invited to reflect a lot, revise, correct, etc., exactly what writers do in real life. In short, there are demanding but rewarding assignments, lectures are high quality and help students, in my opinion, to understand the topics easily. The instructors are nice and care about learners' challenges.

I've been enjoying this course very much. The first week passed by so fast, and was it a very productive one! The tasks and activities can be complex and overwhelming but all geared for everyone to learn. The Course team is brilliant, the support staff is accommodating, you get to exchange discussion and information with other students from different parts of the world, and as you delve deeper into the course materials, you simply learn! Am I really getting this at 0 cost? Amazing!

The State is almost universally considered an institution of social service. Some theorists venerate the State as the apotheosis of society; others regard it as an amiable, though often inefficient, organization for achieving social ends;
