This was a course for my minor, which is professional writing. The course was meant to emphasize strategies for producing effective documents in a variety of professional contexts. We gained practice with common workplace forms as we mastered writing clearly with the needs and expectations of their audiences in mind. The course was particularly valuable to students preparing for careers in business, government, and nonprofit organizations.
