Gregg, Lee W.
This report is a statement of the tentative plans for an interdisciplinary program in document design (effective written communication of ideas to achieve social purposes) at Carnegie-Mellon University. It summarizes the current status of program planning in the following areas: the philosophy underlying the program, the structure of the program, its curriculum design, the needs and specifications for a communication design center for research activities, the core courses of the program, student programs in document design, and student evaluation. Programs at other universities with emphases on rhetoric and cognitive psychology, in which programs in document design might be offered, are discussed. (RL)
