Professional Writing and Communication (PWC)

The Professional Writing and Communication Program (PWC) educates critical thinkers. Program courses cultivate flexible, reflective writers/editors in small, interactive classes.

PWC offers students a community of writers and editors.

Principles of rhetoric and language play a crucial role in academic, artistic, professional,
personal and public settings. PWC students consider how these principles operate and ways to apply these principles in their own writing and editing.

PWC Major or Minor degrees add value and depth to a range of other academic disciplines in the humanities, sciences and social sciences.

PWC encourages students to develop writing portfolios and to publish work they produce in their courses. Many PWC students go on to work as professional writers and editors.

Professional Writing and Communication offers a Major and a Minor Program
