WTNG 225 - Writing in Professional and Public Contexts


Prerequisites: Successful completion (C- or higher) of WTNG 102
Requirement Fulfillment: Minor, Core Concentration
Delivery: Lecture
This problem-based course deepens students’ understanding of how writing works as a tool for thought and as a vehicle for communication. Moving from academic inquiry to writing in professional and public situations, students will investigate a complex, open-ended problem by researching and synthesizing a variety of sources, voices, and perspectives. Throughout their inquiry process, students will develop additional questions, propose solutions, communicate information, and produce documents aimed at informing and persuading a range of audiences. This course offers students opportunities to think like writers as they address problems that matter in academic, professional, and public contexts.
