SWIC to offer a technical writing course for STEM+M students Spring 2020

Being able to effectively communicate is a skill required in every profession and not only for liberal arts and English majors.

Southwestern Illinois College will begin offering a technical writing course starting in the spring 2020 semester. The course, English 203 Technical, Scientific and Professional Communication, will prepare students for writing skills needed for future study and employment in STEM+M, (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) fields. Students will acquire writing and technological skills and develop an understanding of how to use those skills to create communications which are suited to the appropriate audience, purpose, context, genre and modality.

The course will enable students to produce written and visual communications that express important concepts in STEM+M fields. Students will become aware of how to produce professional communications, critique digitally produced texts and how to become confident, prepared communicators within their STEM+M professional lives and careers.

Spring 2020 classes begin Saturday, Jan. 11. For more information on this class contact SWIC English Department Chair Steve Moiles at 618-222-5469 email steve.moiles@swic.edu, or to search for courses offered at SWIC,
