ENG 235 - Self-representation, Professionalism, and Technology

(3 Credits)

Through a series of hands-on assignments and case studies, students will learn the basics of presenting themselves professionally in written and oral discourse, in both physical and virtual mediums. We will discuss and practice communicating respectfully, yet clearly through mediums such as letters and memos as well as emails and other on-line postings. The course will focus on the different types of professional audiences that might read the texts students generate, and we will discuss the appropriate tones to use with each prospective audience. The course will also address crucial oral and visual means of communication, and students will be asked to consider the ways people present themselves in a variety of contexts, including the classroom, workplace, and popular mediums like Facebook and YouTube.

Prerequisite(s): ENG 175 , ENG 176
