Prerequisite: ENGL101; or students who have taken courses with comparable content may contact the department. Restriction: Must have earned a minimum of 60 credits.

Focus on accommodating technical material and empirical studies to lay audiences, and helping writers to achieve stylistic flexibility and correctness.

This course is designed to help students interested in careers in the health professions to make the transition from college-level writing to "real world" professional communication. The course exposes students to advanced research resources and strategies particular to the health professions in order to produce professional documents, including cover letters, resumes, personal statements, project proposals, and review articles. The course covers the complex process writers need to learn to accomplish this goal, including how to accommodate information to specific audiences; how to use stylistic and visual devices to make information more accessible; and how to edit their work as well as that of their peers.
