Professional WritingWelcome to the Professional Writing Program!
The Professional Writing Program at Baylor University is designed to fill a workplace need for people who know how to communicate ideas clearly. Professional writers are in demand to connect information and products with those who need them. Students who finish the program work in a variety of government and industry jobs. They may work as writers or editors on a variety of documents-press releases, brochures, manuals, newsletters, marketing literature, proposals, reports, and WWW documents. Graduates of Baylor's Professional Writing Program are employed by firms such as Southwest Airlines, Taylor Publishing Company, Steward and Stevenson, Exxon-Mobil, and The Young-Roehr Group (marketing communications).
The program includes courses in literature, grammar, and upper-level composition courses such as Technical and Professional Writing, Advanced Expository Writing, Advanced Argumentative and Persuasive Writing, Writing for the Popular Market, and Writing for the Workplace. The program also includes an internship during the student's last year, in which that person works part-time at an off-campus business or public service agency. By the end of the internship, the student has compiled a portfolio of documents from both the internship and other writing courses.
