ENGL 282 Introduction to Writing for the Sciences

This course emphasizes writing for the general public, scientists, and industry. Introduction to Writing for the Sciences teaches students how to translate difficult scientific concepts into concise, readable documents. Students learn how to become effective writers through practice writing assignments, including but not limited to abstracts, research proposals, progress reports, and ethnographies. Students are introduced to the process of effective interpretation and analysis of complex scientific information for a non-scientific audience and will be mentored to help develop their writing style for their intended audience.
