PWR 304 UNDERSTANDING RHETORIC

Rhetoric has been long understood as crucial to the development of effective citizens and leaders for democratic life and is the foundation for all professional writing activities in any context. This course surveys important rhetoric texts in their socio-historical contexts to synthesize definitions of rhetoric, cull valuable rhetorical analysis strategies, and identify practical strategies and heuristics for communicating effectively in professional situations. Students' understanding of rhetoric will be expanded and deepened through academic scholarship, practical assignments, and professionally-oriented project-based work.
