ENGL398C: Writing Case Studies and Investigative Reports

This course is designed for students interested in becoming police investigators, educators, case workers, insurance adjusters, nurses, program evaluators, or in entering branches of the social sciences that investigate cases and value reports based on accurate descriptions and compelling narratives. Such reports must be factual and yet useful to decision makers, unbiased and yet focused. English 398C students study genres and language skills from careful summarizing to convincing storytelling. In addition to case studies and investigative reports, students also prepare professional resumes and personal statements.
