写作、修辞 & 通信程序

写作、修辞 & 通信程序 (WRCP) is a one-of-a-kind space for the exploration of writing (from creative to research to professional), 文学, 通信, 和讲故事. 作为一个面向学生的实体, the program offers both required and elective coursework and is harnessed by four student-facing centers: DSS (数字故事工作室), 考试 (English for Speaks of Other Languages), PSL (the Public Speaking Lab), and WRC (the 编写资源中心). Each of these unique centers provides tutoring services, and advanced opportunities for students to collaborate and learn from a variety of resources how to advance in their own fields.

Our program offers an exciting minor (EWR—环境写作 and Rhetoric) that assists students in understanding the role environmental writing plays both in their own writing and reading and also the world of environmental humanities. Students can choose from numerous upper level courses to complete the minor (Environmental Journalism, 先进的公共演讲, 创造性的非小说, 当代自然文学, to name a few) and work with clubs and organizations that celebrate the role writing plays in nature. This includes the chance to work with 出土, ESF's literary and arts magazine, or to join in hosting meaningful events like film screenings and writing workshops.

写作、修辞 & 通信程序 also addresses the literacy needs of the ESF campus. Through our research-based composition courses, hundreds of students each year gain pertinent writing and research skills. We teach core skills and practices of academic and professional writing through genres such as feasibility reports and research essays, 等. We also teach storytelling across its multiple platforms—from poetry to creative essays to podcasts to short documentary films. Our program hosts more than a dozen established and engaged faculty who, 集体, 教除以1,000 registered students each academic year.

In addition to our minor and literacy services, the 写作、修辞 & 通信程序 leads in our community effort of ESF in High School. We continue to support and work with our students on finding the best ways to engage with the skills they learn.
