Course Description:

In this eight-week, two-credit course, students will develop analytical, research and writing skills at the upper level. Proposal Writing offers a way of presenting these skills in a concrete, real-world context. Students will read and analyze sample proposals and build on basic communication theory as they write short and long proposals. Students will be expected to write short, academic research proposals and longer, formal, work-or community-related proposals. They will share and discuss their writing throughout the course as part of learning how to analyze a proposal's effectiveness. Students taking this course should have advanced-level skills.

This course partially meets the General Education requirement in Basic Communication.

Note: Students taking the two credit version cannot take the three credit version.
