Rhetoric, Composition, and Professional Writing Minor

A minor in Rhetoric, Composition, and Professional Writing provides a program of study to help students learn to use rhetoric and to see how language and writing shape actions and attitudes to form persuasive discourse in a variety of contexts. Students study contemporary and classical rhetoric and composition theory, as well as visual literacy, research methodologies, and professional writing. This minor complements any major on campus and gives students the opportunity to improve critical reading, writing, and thinking skills, as well as to conduct original, undergraduate research, to compose and interpret texts using multiple modes, including written, digital, and visual, to learn to tutor or teach writing, and to acquire competence in critical analysis and effective communication.
