Writing about the Arts and Humanities—ENGL 311
English 311 prepares students to write to both academic and mass audiences about the arts. It concentrates not on specific critical approaches but on the functions, meanings, values, and qualities of art and such rhetorical issues as audience, argument, voice, and style. Although the course builds on the fundamental writing skills acquired in first-year writing courses, the primary concentration is on teaching students to participate intelligently in their individual disciplinary dialogue.
