Then the data was identified, classified, and analyzed by using paragraph theory. Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the writing skill of paragraphs for students in the English Literature Study Program and Japanese and Culture Study Program still needs to be improved because there were still found paragraphs that are lacking in the unity of the ideas. Likewise,by cohesiveness are still found errors, especially in terms of reference. In terms of completeness, sequence, and consistency of points of view in paragraphs students can apply well.
