Department of Writing Studies

Persistent link for this community

The Department of Writing Studies seeks to understand the social, disciplinary, and rhetorical functions of written, visual, digital, scientific and technical communication practices. Through our broad-ranging research, degree programs, and courses--as well as our outreach to the University and communities outside the University--we investigate the intersections of communication with culture, politics, science, technology, and ethics. In all our educational programs, we strive to foster our students' critical-thinking skills as well as their sense of personal, professional, and civic responsibility.
