¿Qué aprenderé?

The Rhetoric and Professional Writing track (RPW) prepares students to write persuasively and effectively in public and professional settings. We emphasize experiential learning opportunities, such as client-based class projects and internships, and offer students interdisciplinary and collaborative experiences that are important for a wide range of professional environments. The track prepares students to be informed, responsible participants in civic affairs and can lead to employment in commercial and non-profit organizations or graduate work in professional writing.


The English degree offers unique opportunities for undergraduate students to shape their curriculum according to their interests and future professional goals. All undergraduate students take a core group of courses designed to introduce them to the history, language, and current disciplinary discourses of English studies. Beyond the core courses, students choose a track designed to develop their skills and talents in Creative Writing (Fiction, Literary Nonfiction, Poetry), Literary & Cultural Studies, or Rhetoric & Professional Writing. Undergraduate students can double major in two tracks of English, and can also combine a major in one of the tracks with a certificate in a different track; the program offers certificates in Creative Writing, Professional Writing, and Medical Humanities, and English courses play a role in the curriculum requirements of several interdisciplinary certificates, including Digital Engagement and Film & Media Studies.

Students who pursue a BA in English – Rhetoric & Professional Writing should desire to build on their strengths in writing, reading, and critical thinking. The RPW track is designed for students who want to be the bridge between art and science. Professional writers are the artists who bring to life the science of business, technology, discoveries, and world events. They are the storytellers who translate complex phenomena to a target audience, connecting ideas and people. Professional writers do more than just put words on paper. They design. They create. They promote. They edit. They analyze. They construct ideas. They illustrate characters. They deliver results.
