RHET 4270-02 Research and Writing Internship is a capstone course outside the major which offers real-world experience that helps prepare you for the job market. Throughout the course you’ll learn more about your own writing process to help in the transition from academic writing to work-place writing. You will engage in group discussions of writing theory and, during the second half of the semester, you will gain hands-on experience tutoring peers at the Mohamed Taymour Writing and Communication Center.

Spring 2018, Mondays and Thursdays 2:00-3:15
