FNMS 284 - Writing in Professional Contexts


An advanced course in practical writing, with emphasis on writing as problem solving and on conciseness and clarity. Each student will select a particular local problem requiring a professional or technical solution, research the history of that problem, and write a report recommending a course of action to a specific audience. In addition to preparing frequent shorter writing assignments and the final large report, students will also be required to attend at least one career-related workshop or seminar offered by the Filene Center and to prepare a short report based on that seminar.
