The syllabus focuses on developing an appropriate academic voice to help you express yourself appropriately in academic writing as a member of the SFU academic community.  The course is not formally graded, but students will complete several reading, writing, and grammar tasks, which will used to provide personalized feedback.

 Open to undergraduate students only.
