Any SLCC student considering the WRS major, minor, or Certificate in Professional and Technical Writing can take WRTG 3030: Writing across Locations for free. This 3-credit course is offered every summer on an SLCC campus. Enrollment
is on a first-come, first-serve basis for up to 25 students per year.
In Summer 2022, WRTG 3030 will be offered in a hybrid online format with an optional
face-to-face meeting on Tuesday evenings. The course will run from May 17-August 2.
WRTG 3030 connects you with the community of WRS teachers, scholars, and students
in the Salt Lake Valley. It provides opportunities to:
- Make friends with other Writing Studies Scholars
- Meet faculty mentors
- Identify your interests and possible professional paths
- Learn about U of U resources and opportunities
WRTG 3030 is a writing-intensive course that helps you get a sense of the workload
you can expect in a 3000-level course at the U of U. The readings, class discussions,
and writing projects focus on how the field of writing & rhetoric studies engages
with diversity, equity, & social justice.
We strongly encourage students who want to join Writing Studies Scholars to take WRTG
3030, but this course is not required for participation in the program. WRTG 3030
is free for SLCC students of any documentation status.
If you would like to get on the list for WRTG 3030 in Summer 2022, please email program
