The Writing Studies Track enables students to design a course of study in the theory and practice of writing in a variety of genres. A student who completes this track will be able to demonstrate skills in the analysis, construction, and presentation of texts; to identify and apply productive, effective, and creative approaches to writing tasks for diverse audiences; and to create a portfolio of writing for use in applying to graduate programs or for professional positions. The Writing Studies Track prepares students for any career that requires professional writing skills.
