Style and Editing in Technical and Scientific Communication

TCC 6030 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Serves as a foundational course in verbal and visual design. Introduces the basic theoretical questions that students explore in later courses. Beginning by historicizing the clear style associated with technical writing, draws on rhetorical theory to explore the epistemological issues raised in discussions of the relationship between form and substance. Offers students an opportunity to develop a facility with stylistic techniques; a vocabulary for discussing and evaluating elements of visual design; a practiced ability to edit the writing of others; and a rudimentary sense of the political, legal, and ethical dimensions inherent in communication.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
