Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Students will learn how to write in and about the profession they plan to pursue after college. Classroom instruction, careful attention to the professional samples (e.g. readings, websites), various written exercises completed during class, and one on one conferences will help students learn the basics of workplace prose. Students will complete five out-of-classroom assignments that focus on writing for an in-house or an online audience. They will also write in the classroom to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts involved with each assignment. A final exam on fundamentals of writing is also required. Proper grammar, punctuation, mechanics, spelling and formatting will be expected and clear writing required; graceful prose will be encouraged within these bounds. This course will be listed in the Aesthetic and Creative Expression WOK. In ENGWRT 0501, students will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of human expression as well as create work in written and digital mediums. ENGCMP 0006 is the prerequisite (ENGCMP 0005 for Engineering and Nursing).
