VIDEOS for ENGLISH 526 / “Advanced Professional Writing” / Northern Arizona University
Course Description: In this course you will conceptualize a research study and develop a realistic research proposal. You will learn about how and why research is often a critical part of successful participation in the professional setting. While developing a personal research agenda and a proposal that will be of value to you after the course is finished, you will also be introduced to a range of theories on research and on writing in professional settings. Put even more directly, this course in “Advanced Professional Writing” focuses on two things, one broad, the other specific:
- Broad: Thinking about role of writing in professional settings.
- Specific: Understanding what is involved in planning, conceiving, and writing up a “convincing” research proposal that fits with your own career ambitions (academic and professional) and goals.
