Academic and Career Advising
The Writing Studies program provides the first two years of required courses and general education requirements for the University of Utah’s Writing and Rhetoric Studies degree (either major or minor). Writing Studies majors study writing in its rhetorical, cultural, social, ethical, and political aspects. Writing Studies is not limited to English but incorporates all languages that students bring to the study. Writing Studies majors become critical thinkers and proficient writers of multiple types of writing including professional, academic, technical, and digital.
A degree in Writing Studies prepares students for many careers because graduates excel in the critical thinking and writing skills most valued by employers. Writing Studies graduates pursue careers in web authoring, grant writing, science writing, journalism, artificial intelligence, advertising, teaching, law, government, and business. Minoring in Writing Studies or double majoring with another degree elevates qualifications for many career paths, especially law, business, teaching, sociology, political science, and the arts.
This program has been designed to meet first and second-year core requirements in the University of Utah’s Writing and Rhetoric Studies major or minor undergraduate program. Admission into a major program at a transfer institution depends upon the receiving institution’s requirements for that major. Some major programs are restricted and require special application as well as a competitive GPA. See an Academic Advisor at both SLCC and the intended receiving institution for specific articulation information.
