Goals: To have students understand fundamental principles of rhetorical theory and how they can be applied -- analytically, ethically, and/or persuasively -- in a variety of organizational frameworks and in the production of common genres of professional communication, including memos and reports, job letters, policy documents, and public relations. Content: Using readings in rhetorical theory and case studies in professional communication, the course will focus on the ethical, technological, legal, and pragmatic elements of producing professional writing in various genres and media and for diverse audiences and purposes. Taught: Annually in fall and spring semesters. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing and ENG 1110 or FSEM 1020. Note: ENG 1800 is required in the English major with a concentration in professional writing and in the professional writing minor. ENG 1800 replaces one of the two required survey (12XX) courses for the professional writing concentration and serves as the required survey course for the professional writing minor. ENG 1800 may count as one of the two required survey courses (12XX) in the English major and the English major with a concentration in creative writing, but it may not be taken as the required survey course in the English or creative writing minors.
