College Composition

All students are to complete a course of study in the first year that includes composition, history, religious studies, and philosophy. This course of study, called the Humanities Commons, is designed to provide the foundation for critical thinking, critical reading, and effective written expression.

Most students entering the University of Dayton complete a two-year course of study in composition by enrolling in ENG 100 in their first year (either in fall or spring semester) and ENG 200 in their second year (either in fall or spring semester). Some students entering the University of Dayton will complete a one-year course of study in composition. If they place out of ENG 100, they will take ENG 200H in their first year (either in fall or spring semester). ENG100 and ENG200H are courses in the Humanities Commons.
