ENC 4331: Writing, Rhetoric, and Community

This is a course about writing and community. We will discuss and write about what civic role students can and should play in local, national, and global communities, and how they can use writing and rhetoric to advance both their professional goals and the goals of various communities that matter to them. Students will research and write about contemporary civic issues, explore different ways to move an audience to action, and analyze the effectiveness of real campaigns to remedy social problems. Students will also develop a real project to make an impact on an issue of their choice.
