The Rhetoric & Writing Studies doctoral program welcomes graduate students from across campus for two classes in the Fall 2022 semester:

ENG 7260: RESEARCH DESIGN IN RHETORIC & WRITING STUDIES, Dr. Chad Iwertz Duffy,, Thursdays 2:30- 5:20p, 115 East Hall

ENG 7260 explores a range of research methods, methodologies, and pressing issues associated with undertaking independent, contemporary graduate-level research, with an emphasis on empirical, qualitative, and quantitative approaches. The range of readings assigned throughout the term aim to introduce students to frameworks for approaching professional academic strategies for inquiry and ensuring that inquiry is ethical, responsible, and valid—both internally and externally. Class members will practice reading research—particularly methods sections—closely and critically, with an eye toward becoming skillful consumers of research-based knowledge.

ENG 7210: WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION, Dr. Lee Nickoson,, Tuesdays 2:30- 5:20p, 306 East Hall

We will explore writing program administration as a site of scholarly inquiry: the methods, methodologies, and pressing issues associated with understanding and representing in ways that are persuasive to targeted audiences various writing program administration sites, contexts, and challenges. Through assigned readings, the informal and formal projects, and collaborative discussions have the shared goal of introducing frameworks for approaching WPA scholarship as ethical, responsible, and impactful inquiry. We will survey the field and develop critical and rhetorical skills surrounding WPA scholarship so that we become additionally engaged readers as well as authors of impactful, research-based WPA-focused scholarly and creative works.
