This seminar is intended to introduce students to the art of research and writing. Its objective is to familiarize students with information: its acquisition, analysis, and communication. Students will be required to write short book reviews and a research paper, which will demonstrate the students' ability to research and analyze primary sources. Students may be required to take this seminar under certain conditions: their native language is not English, their writing is not deemed satisfactory by IWP professors, or the Admissions Committee requires it as a condition of admission.
