WRT 480 Senior Seminar in Professional Writing


The Senior Seminar in writing provides a capstone academic experience for writing majors and helps to prepare them for the job market. The course will have three facets, mirroring the three main aspects of the Professional Writing curriculum: (1) reading and responding to essays on rhetoric and composition theory; (2) exploring careers in pro­fessional writing by reading case studies of professional writers and hearing from guest speakers, by performing mock interviews and by investigating professional writers’ organizations and graduate programs in writing; (3) revising writing from other courses (and from their experiential learning seminar) toward the formation of a professional writer’s portfolio and current resume. Prerequisite: WRT 280  and 90 credits.

3 credit hours
