Courses for Academic Writing

The Academic Writing Program offers instruction in rhetoric and composition at the Introductory and Advanced levels. We teach over 30 sections of Writing 1000: An Introduction to Academic Writing each year. In addition, we offer instruction advanced rhetoric and discourse analysis in our Writing 2000: Writing in the Disciplines Series. This includes popular courses such as The Rhetoric of Medicine and Health and The Rhetoric of Science, as well as new courses we are developing in Writing and Technology and The Rhetoric of Business.

You might also consider an Independent Study, a writing-intensive exploration of a topic of your choice, the focus and content of which is developed in conjunction with your instructor. For more information about Independent Studies, consult Part 7, Section 18 of the U of L Calendar.
