Department of Writing Studies  [128]

Persistent link to this collection:

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.
