WRT3011 Advanced Writing


This advanced writing course provides students with an opportunity to refine their ability to communicate effectively in a variety of rhetorical situations, and to examine the social construction of knowledge across disciplines and discourse communities. Building on the academic writing and research skills covered in first-year writing courses, students will engage in writing projects that provide practice with more advanced analytical and information literacy skills. Through the study of various modes of argumentation, students will expand the range of rhetorical approaches that they can employ in their writing for upper-level college courses as well as in public and professional discourse communities beyond the college classroom. Students will explore the rhetorical and ethical impacts of visual, digital, and social media; and engage in multimodal communication, with an emphasis on effective writing. Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. Credits: 3.000
