Students in the program have the opportunity to learn from accessible and supportive research faculty, who hold leadership positions in the field's major professional organizations and on editorial boards.
Areas of faculty and student research include the study of rhetoric, writing and communication in professional spaces, such as corporations, health care, science, and government, as well as school, digital, community, and public contexts. Other research areas include the history, theory, and pedagogy of writing and literacy practices.
