New Course Offering: Writing for Life

This notice is from the archives of The Notice Board. Information contained in this notice was accurate at the time of publication but may no longer be so.

Have you ever been faced with a writing task—either at home, at work, or at school—that was completely new to you, one that was never covered in any courses you had taken, a task that mattered because its success or failure carried real-world consequences? If so, you are not alone, many writing tasks we are faced with in our personal, professional and even academic lives were never taught to us.

The goal of this Applied Studies course is to teach you how to analyze and successfully complete writing tasks you’ve never seen before, and that you have never been taught how to do. The analytic and writing skills developed in this class will help foster greater success in your personal, professional, and academic writing.


Students will work in the community as well as on campus on topics that include:

  • Transferable analytic skills
  • Writing grant proposals
  • Social impact
  • Community engagement

In addition, students will put into action these skills and foundational ideas to solve problems related to their community partner. A variety of topics will be introduced to help provide students with ideas and supports to complete their projects.
