This pioneering concentration combines linguistics and technical/professional writing, offering unique and cutting-edge applied-language expertise to English majors interested in any career that requires expertise in how people interact and present themselves on different platforms and media, how they respond to language, and how they negotiate power and identity through language. Such knowledge is necessary in many careers such as speech writing, advertising, medical narratives, education, profiling, belief formation, corporate storytelling, and bibliotherapy.
