Description: Professional Writing and Communication (PWC) refers to the principles of communication articulated in classical rhetoric and updated through contemporary theory and practice in professional settings. PWC treats communication as interdisciplinary and socially situated. Program courses emphasize communications based on primary research.

The PWC curriculum grows out of composition, genre, and discourse theories — research grounded in anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, linguistics and literary theory. PWC students examine the way communication, especially written communication, works in professional, academic, artistic, personal and public settings.
