Syllabus: UC Santa Barbara Writ 107EP- Writing for Environmental Professionals (Environmental Justice Theme)

Writ107EP was taught by Professor Auli Ek during Fall 2017 and focuses on analysis and practice of professional writing used in addressing environmental topics such as water management, carbon neutrality, and sustainability. Attention is given to research methods, audience analysis, purposes, genres, document design, conciseness, collaboration, and editing strategies characteristic to effective professional communication. The theme of this version of the course is environmental justice. The course familiarizes students with the genres of writing encountered by environmental professionals in governmental, public, private, political, corporate, nonprofit, and legislative contexts. Types of documents analyzed and written include emails, memos, letters, resumes, informal and formal reports, executive summaries, and policy proposals. Students develop an understanding of paragraph structure and document design by planning, writing, and revising; and learn the value of clear, concise style.
