Courses in this area offer students the opportunity to develop their writing skills in one or more genre(s) of nonfiction prose. Common to all courses will be a sustained attention to writing for specific audiences and purposes. In addition, courses will aim at developing the ability to control tone, emphasis and nuance for effective and—when appropriate—evocative prose style. Content and focus will vary from section to section, but recent offerings have included Writing Arguments, Science Writing, Introduction to Creative Nonfiction, and Feature Writing. May be repeated for credit if the topic is substantially different. Prerequisite: ENGL 102, CORE 101, NITZ 180, or CORE 301.
