PREREQUISITE:  Completion of the English Composition requirement.

This course is designed to help students in any field develop
writing and research skills which will be useful in the professional
world and any future writing project.  This course concentrates on
the writing of concise, informative prose, and emphasizes the
importance of writing with a clearly defined purpose and audience.
Assignments will be based on general principles of communication but
will usually take the form of writing done in the world of work:
letters, memos, summaries, and abstracts, reports, proposals, etc.

Students will often be able to write on subjects related to their
field of study. The course requires constant, careful attention to
writing and rewriting, and many classes will be conducted as
workshops, with writing exercises and detailed discussion of the
work of class members.
