U101 is an award-winning three credit hour course designed to help you make a successful transition to the University of South Carolina, both academically and personally. It aims to foster a sense of belonging, promotes engagement in the curricular and co-curricular life of the University, highlights what the University and its faculty expect from students, and helps you develop and apply critical thinking skills. U101 provides a unique introduction to USC, and serves as a great way to learn and interact with students and faculty in the Preston Residential College community. Both sections are taught by Preston Residential College staff members.

Text, Fear, and Power: Reading and Writing with Banned Books

Fulfills Carolina Core CMW

English 101 provides structured, sustained practice in critical reading, analysis and composing. Through reading and writing assignments, you will explore the interconnectedness of reading and writing, and learn how to use both reading and writing as venues for inquiry, learning, thinking, interpretation, and communication. This course, in particular, will take as its focus banned books. Together we’ll consider why these texts are considered powerful and therefore threatening.
