Course Description:

English for the STEM Fields is designed to introduce students to the types of writing and rhetoric that will give them an edge in the competitive worlds of science and technology! Every technical field is presented with challenges that will require a budding physician, engineer, or scientist to pull out those English skills and write again. Whether it is a long-form research proposal for a biochemical lab, a technical presentation to a software startup, or a grant proposal for a medical department, Writing and Rhetoric play an integral part in every STEM field.

This course will help young scholars who might think that they “just don’t need English anymore” and prepare STEM students for the writing rigors of their future fields. Students will learn technical writing structures such as American Psychological Association (APA) and Chicago literary notations used for scientific and research texts. Additionally, students will learn how to put together basic research proposal structures, grant proposals for medical/technical fields, and quantitative presentation methods for displaying computer science and engineering data in an approachable manner.
