Clear, concise, and well-crafted communication is essential in all areas of endeavour. However, the characteristics of this communication can vary by professional context. 

Professional Writing addresses this need for context-appropriate writing with a unique combination of courses and work placement opportunities. 

The Minor in Professional Writing is a collaboration between the Department of English and the School of Linguistics & Language Studies. As such, it integrates theory from such fields as genre, discourse, and writing studies with the practical application of these theories in a range of different fields and with a variety of different communication objectives.
