English Course: Rhetorical Theory and Practice

Registration for the Spring 2021 semester is now closed.

Students Reading

The Department of English’s Theory and Practice (ENC 3371-B51) course is available this spring.

The course will help students better understand and effectively engage with writing and communication practices. Rhetorical theory informs the decisions writers, influencers and communicators make daily. Students will investigate their writing choices with an emphasis on their communities, looking at how issues of power affect rhetorical practices. During this course, students will analyze a range of conversations and issues from rhetorical standpoints and come to learn more about productively participating in communities and how rhetoric affects their daily experiences in meaningful ways.

Professor Vernon Dickson will teach this hybrid/hyflex (BBC) course on Thursdays from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Dickson earned his Ph.D. from Arizona State University and specializes in Early Modern Literature and Rhetoric.
