ENGL 247 - Rhetoric and Writing Studies

(3,0) 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 - English Composition I .
The course looks at the way language works in different contexts, for different purposes, and from diverse disciplinary perspectives. Historically, rhetoric was considered to be the foundation on which critical thinking, effective communication, and self-knowledge was built. In contemporary rhetoric, culture and media are part of this foundation. This course will explore primary texts in the form of literature, film, scientific discourse, journalism, political propaganda as well as secondary sources within the disciplines of rhetoric and writing studies. The course serves students interested in English, education, journalism, communications, film studies, and other liberal arts and social science programs of study.
