Designed to help students develop writing and research skills which will be useful in the professional world and in future writing projects. 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 own 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.
