This course prepares students to engage with a range of workplace genres, e.g., job application materials, memos, multimedia reports, proposals, and correspondence. Every professional context is unique, so this class cannot teach rules: instead, it equips students with methods of addressing new writing tasks in any professional writing setting. These methods allow writers to analyze audience, genre convention/expectations, and social context in order to produce rhetorically effective documents. Since professional writing is often a collaborative process, students learn to work together on writing projects and carry out independent research. English 229 is appropriate for students interested in writing-intensive professions, including government, journalism, law, community advocacy, the non-profit sector, education, corporate communications, finance, and the arts. Students have the chance to explore genres of professional writing in their own majors or areas of interest.
