WRTG 372 Grammar and Style for Writers

This course helps writers move beyond notions of "correctness" in matters of grammar and style to appreciate the nuances involved in crafting well-written persuasive prose for a variety of audiences, purposes, and contexts. It empowers students to approach grammar, syntax, and punctuation as rhetorical tools and to make thoughtful decisions among equally acceptable alternatives to suit the goals and needs of different audiences, assignments, and contexts. Because professional writers often work for an organization or institution, the course also introduces students to the notion of a style guide, preparing them to work with whatever house style is adopted by a specific profession or publication.
