2012-2014 COURSE CATALOGUE : WRITING COLLEAGUES PROGRAM

The Writing Colleagues program combines practical experience working with students to improve their reading and writing, not as a tutor but as a trained reader, with intellectual inquiry into the social, cultural, psychological, and cognitive processes of language. A student first applies to the Writing Colleagues program by contacting the program director. Once accepted as a candidate colleague, the student enrolls in the Writing Colleagues seminar and, by earning a B or better, becomes a Writing Colleague. The colleague is then qualified to work with professors in a series of field placements, associated with courses the professor is teaching. Completion of the Writing Colleagues program is valuable preparation for work in teaching, law, journalism, public policy, advertising/marketing, public relations, and publishing. The Writing Colleagues program offers both a disciplinary and an interdisciplinary minor. Students who major in Writing and Rhetoric and minor in the Writing Colleagues program must have a second minor.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MINOR

WRRH 305 Writing Colleagues seminar; two field placements, one of which must be a first-year seminar; three courses from the Writing Colleagues core or approved electives.
