The minor in Professional Writing is intended to prepare students from all degree programs within the Berks-Lehigh Valley College (with the exception of the major in Professional Writing) to write effectively in a variety of workplace and academic settings. Theory courses provide the necessary background to help students understand and appreciate the larger issues surrounding the writing and reading of texts. At the same time, practice-oriented courses draw upon the strategies and techniques of practicing writers outside and inside of the University, including workshops, peer conferencing, collaborative writing, portfolio preparation, and internships.
Students may not count courses used to satisfy General Education Writing/Speaking Skills.
