ENG3400 Editing Essentials 3 credits 5 weeks

This course focuses on editing written texts at three levels: for correctness (grammar, mechanics, spelling and punctuation); for precision (unity, order, coherence, emphasis); and for style (syntax, level of detail, tone, diction, voice). Students will perform close analysis of surface features of their own and professional writing, and they will complete exercises designed to strengthen their ability to edit written texts at the three levels named above.

Prerequisite:
ENG1000, ENG2000, and ENG2100
