A Research Program in Composition.
Flood, Jeanne A.
The Department of English at Wayne State University is planning to introduce a doctoral program directed to the processes involved in the composition of expository prose. Students admitted to the program will be trained primarily in linguistics and cognitive psychology, though they will also work in communication theory and rhetorical analysis. The program will include three years of course work beyond the B.A. At the end of the third year, course work and preliminary examinations will have been completed, and students will begin a major research project for the dissertation, under the combined direction of a linguist and a psychologist. The new program is seen to be relevant to the total work of the English department and to be of potentially great value to colleagues working in psychological, semiotic, and linguistic criticism.
