Master of Arts in Professional and Technical Writing

Topics Courses

Topics courses are courses that do not have an official class title in the graduate catalogue. These types of courses give the faculty of the Dept. of Rhetoric and Writing the freedom to offer courses with varying topics all year long. There are three main types of topics courses and they are: Topics in Persuasive Writing, Topics in Technical Communication, and Topics in Nonfiction Writing. More information about topics courses can be found in Course Descriptions.
