Write a 3 page document that examines a specific field of study or major offered at the
University of Denver. Your document should explain the kinds of writing and research methods that characterize traditional work in this field. Your document might examine the kinds of research and writing that both students and scholars perform in this field. Finally, write an argument that examines why these particular research and writing methods make sense within this field, from your own perspective.
You should write professionally, for an academic setting. You might perceive your audience as a student who has yet to declare a major at DU, but donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t feel the need to make this document a marketing tool. Such documents exist in the form of departmental brochures and mailings sent out to prospective students. Your purpose is less to persuade an audience to declare a particular major as it is to inform your audience about the what and why of research and writing within this field. (If you choose a different audience for your document, discuss your rhetorical decision-making with me first.)
Incorporate two to three different sources of information into your document, including
information from an interview (in-person or via email) and other textual sources of your
