Writing and Rhetoric B.A.

Harrington School PR Awards


As a writing and rhetoric major, you’ll learn about writing as a discipline. You’ll probe key questions in rhetoric, balancing practice in the craft of writing with historical, theoretical, and research-based knowledge about writing and its effects on audiences.

And by the time you graduate, you’ll have the tools and the confidence to create appropriate responses to almost any situation in school, at work, and in your community.
