Py/Hc/En240 Writing for the Medical Humanist 4 credits
This course offers students a systematic program along the continuum from expressive to transactional writing. The course leads students to the development of sophisticated rhetorical capacity. Students will learn how to write expressively as well as persuasively so as to help those patients with whom they interact to use composition as a tool to confront their situations and then to write about their needs to their caregivers. The course will also introduce students to strategies for writing longer, more research- oriented texts. Prerequisites: En102 or En150 or permission of the instructor.
