This course provides students with high-level analytical skills in written, visual and multi-modal communication. We will develop a set of analytical tools which explore issues of meaning in relevant professional texts. Meanings will be explored in terms of issues of creating content, constructing identity and relations, and creating cohesive and coherent texts. Specific analytical tools will be developed which focus on issues of grammar, discourse, register, and genre. These tools will be used to interrogate and critique texts in relation to their social and professional contexts, and to inform students' production of their own texts in professional domains.
