The Program in Writing and Rhetoric offers notations in cultural rhetorics and science communication.
A Notation is a designation that appears on your transcript indicating your advanced work in rhetoric and communication. It is like a minor but allows more latitude in completing the required work and focuses on an interdisciplinary ePortfolio rather than a high number of additional courses.
