Course Description

Successful communicators know that effective writing is essential in a variety of professions. You will develop your writing skills through working on correspondence, such as letters, memos, and email; as well as summaries and reports. Topics include: composition, writing clearly, grammar, sentence structure, writing across cultures, and ethical writing. Ample opportunity for writing  is available through exercises and assignments, and feedback on your writing is provided by peers as well as by the instructor.

Notes

Former names/numbers: BMC 113 Business Writing Basics and WRI 130 Professional Writing Basics.

This is not an introductory writing course. Opportunities to practise grammar, punctuation and mechanics are provided; however, specific instruction in these basic skills is not the focus of the course.
