The course outline shows the new content. The first semester will be devoted to exposition. The stud^ts will pur chase Essays of Our Times by Hama- lian and Volpe (New York: Me Graw- Hill, 1960) as the basis of the reading and discussion. The essays, which deal with contemporary problems, will serve as models of good prose writing. Each student is required to write 3 minimum of nine essays. The sec ond semester the students will read 3hort stories, a novel, and some poe try. They will be taught to write es says in which they give their opinions Df their reading. Third, the Department of English s offering a developmental program for thos^^udents who made scores below the cut-off percentile and o the Entrance Examination.
