Welcome to Composition at the Beach! CSULB’s composition program is committed to helping students develop the writing abilities needed to succeed in their academic careers, their future professions, their civic responsibilities, and their lives in general. This social networking site is rich with resources for composition instructors and students. Through the “Groups” tab, Composition at the Beach also serves as the portal for many courses: from First-Year Composition to Advanced Argumentation to our graduate course on Theories and Practices of Composition, the site presents the most up-to-date approaches to teaching writing today.
