ENGW 183 - Writing About Disability


4 credit(s)
Writing-intensive course that introduces students to the field of Disability Studies. Disability Studies understands disability as referring not only to a biological or medical condition, but also to a community of people (the largest minority in the U.S.); to a civil rights movement; to a complex set of social and ethical issues; and to a universal human experience. This course develops students’ understanding of disability in its social, cultural, and ethical dimensions. It will also help students build critical-thinking skills, understand rhetorical methods, and shape effective prose styles, culminating in a research paper. Students may take ENGW 180 or ENGW 181 or ENGW 182 or ENGW 183 or DS 183 to satisfy the core writing requirement, but may only earn credit for one of these courses. DS 183  
Offered: Spring; alternating years.
