Change in Semester ECI 307 is Offered Now that we have both ECI 450 Methods and Materials of Teaching English, and ECI 454 Student Teaching in English Language Arts, both taught in the spring block, we have moved ECI 307 Teaching of Writing across the Curriculum to the fall semester, junior year.  This course will now be a pre-requisite for ECI 450 Methods, as has been the practice.


Change in Pre-requisites for ECI 307 The pre-requisites listed in the catalog are outdated.  ENG 112 is no longer offered.  The correct course is ENG 101 Academic Writing and Research.  


There are no changes in course content.
