Writing From Sources

ENGL 103

In this course, we’ll develop and practice the reading, writing and critical thinking strategies needed to create organized and correctly documented papers using academic sources. You’ll learn how to critically read academic texts, develop research questions, make claims, and determine the credibility of sources and appropriately cite them in your writing.

Designed For

Non-native English speakers who want to build confidence and develop key academic reading, writing and communication strategies for college-level study. This course satisfies the UW English Language Proficiency Requirement (ELPR) and also counts toward the Additional Writing (W-course) credit requirement.

Attendance and Workload

All Early Fall Start courses require the same amount of academic work as any other UW course, and full attendance and participation is required. In general, each course requires about 10 hours of homework each week.


The instructor will vary depending on the course section.
