|ENGH 240 - Introduction to Writing and Communication Studies|
At the heart of both Writing Studies and Communication Studies is the study of language and the complex ways we shape and are shaped by the written and spoken word. From the personal to the professional, written and spoken texts are driven by the message the author/speaker wishes to send, the needs and expectations of the audience being addressed, and the genre and medium selected for that message. Students will have the opportunity to study the history, theory, and practical applications of writing and communication from classical rhetoric to social media, and from the arts to professions as diverse as advertising, journalism, public relations, and the law. Considers, also, the ways technologies have changed writing and communication.
