Proposal and Grant Writing (WRTG-31700), the capstone of the professional writing curriculum, concentrates on formal proposals and grants. Students address problems in the local community while studying the interplay among business, education, government, and non-profits.
Attentive to civic responsibility in the marketplace, this course teaches research and interviewing, project management, editing, and document design. Writing assignments include feasibility, assessment, and progress reports and individual and group projects. Through service learning within the local community, students come to understand the value of social capital in the public and private sectors.
