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.
