About the Department
In July, 2014 the University Writing Program became the Department of Writing and Rhetoric Studies, making it one of several high-profile institutions in the country to better identify its role locally and nationally. We now offer a growing major and minor while still offering essential writing courses to undergraduate and graduate students across campus. Our interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Writing and Rhetoric Studies is currently offered through three partnering departments; students take courses with us and complement their scholarly interest through the partnering department.
Writing on Utah's Asia Campus
Two faculty members in the Department, Professors Jay Jordan and Joel Mullen, are currently in Songdo, Korea at the U's new Asia Campus, which recently opened. Professor Jordan was invited to teach a course on Global Citizenship, and Professor Mullen is teaching introductory and intermediate writing. Both faculty have extensive experience living and teaching writing internationally: Jordan in Poland and Mullen in Mexico.
