Course Projects

In the Professional Writing Program, you will experience the types of practices, projects, and activities that professional writers perform, by applying the concepts and theories you’re studying to real world challenges.

In every course, you’ll engage in guided practical experiences that bring workplace issues into the classroom through guest speakers, simulations, case study analysis, or team-based projects that build both collaborative and leadership skills.
