ENGL 10515 Advanced Professional and Technical Writing

This course develops students' understanding of and practice in the rhetorical, practical, and ethical concerns in professional and technical writing contexts. Furthermore, this course challenges, complicates, and expands students' previous understanding with more theoretical and global writing concerns.  In the course, students practice writing both in individual assignments and research projects, which may include focusing more specifically on a particular professional discipline, industry, or area and/or produce document-based solutions for professional problems.  Prerequisite: ENGL 10315 or instructor approval.
