Writing for the Sciences
Course No. LLC 213X Credits: 3.0
Faculty Joyce Kessler
This course introduces the basic written discourse forms of the sciences. It gives an overview and rationale of scientific reports describing the results of original research. It provides students with an opportunity to develop competency in the discourse model that has evolved over centuries of scientific practice. Students will learn the specific lexical, grammatical, and stylistic conventions that comprise the accepted written format, in addition to the components of a scientific report; i.e., the Introduction (including the Literature Review), the Methods, the Results (including their display and documentation), the Discussion, and the References. The term project for each student will be focused on the preparation of a full written report of that student’s individual inquiry into an area of scientific research relevant to their particular studio work and/or interests. Class meetings will center on discussion of readings, research, and on class critique of written drafts that students prepare as they work toward the final versions of their reports. Offered yearly. Fulfills writing-intensive requirement.
While at CIA, you'll learn from the masters through our rigorous, world-class curriculum and connect with working professionals to begin your career.
