ENGL 406 - Research Methods in Writing Studies

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ENGL 226
In this course, students learn and practice research methods used to produce written critical arguments in the field of Writing Studies. Students explore in more detail the critical theories and methods of research used by scholars in the field and begin to use them in their own work. Students will read and engage with a variety of secondary sources to contextualize and better understand research methods in Writing Studies, such as rhetorical analysis, ethnography and case study, quantitative analysis, linguistic analysis, and/or archival research. Students engage in multiple research projects to begin to learn the ethics and practices central to the creation of knowledge in the field. Offered annually.
