Writing for Career and Community
English & Film Studies
To be effective across Laurier programs, students must be able to express themselves through their writing in a variety of formats. In addition, the employment context is such that the link between academic writing and the writing skills required for different career paths must be more explicitly bridged through curriculum and practice. Students must be able to demonstrate knowledge, analytical skills and professionalism through their writing. Moreover, at the core of the Faculty of Arts is the desire to provide students with the capacity and confidence to make a difference in their communities, whether as individuals or through social enterprises. The Faculty of Arts is thus proposing a "Writing for Career and Community" (WCC) Minor which is designed both to enhance the applied elements of existing programming in Arts and also to provide students with an additional range of competencies.
