Writing papers communicating information and opinion to develop accurate, competent, and effective expression.
This course moves beyond the introduction to general academic writing common to 100-level writing courses to introduce students to the particularities of writing in the academic and professional disciplines. Students will focus their attention on the rhetorical practices of writing within their declared or intended major field of study. Students can expect to develop a view of writing as a rhetorical practice, as well as a deeper understanding of the writing conventions in their majors.
