Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications

Students and staff at a computer

Students who major in Rhetoric and Communications practise writing in a variety of genres and read contemporary non-fiction, analyze visual and verbal texts, trace the impact of print and electronic media on western culture, and – through the study of theory and close attention to textual practices – examine how ideology is embodied in discourse. Students with a B.A. in Rhetoric and Communications can enter graduate studies in such fields as Communications, Composition, Media Studies, and Rhetoric. They are also well prepared for public- and private-sector careers that depend on advanced analytical and communicative skills, especially in writing.
