Description:Professional Writing and Communication (P.W.C.) refers to the principles of communication articulated in classical rhetoric and updated through contemporary theory and practice in professional settings. P.W.C. sees communication as interdisciplinary and socially situated. Program courses emphasize communications based on primary research. The P.W.C. curriculum grows out of composition, genre, and discourse theories - research grounded in anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, linguistics, and literary theory. P.W.C. students will examine the way communication, especially written communication, works in professional, academic, artistic, and personal and public settings.

P.W.C. aims to produce critical thinkers and flexible, reflective writers and researchers who apply their knowledge of language and communications principles across disciplines.
