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.
