Following a rich history of public communication and civic engagement, UTC’s Rhetoric & Professional Writing concentration offers students access to the theories and practices of public discourse.
Our courses range from studies of ancient argument strategies to new theories about visual design and include applied courses in writing, design, and public rhetoric.
We engage students in the arts of public communication, encourage civic engagement and a broader understanding of the history of discourse practices, and provide training in real world writing and design

Students work with faculty and their peers to edit and produce Sequoya Review, our award-winning, student-edited print journal, Catalpa, and other publications.
Rhetoric & Professional Writing majors explore the practical applications of their studies through the English Department’s Internship Program for juniors and seniors.
