Unifying Program Goals: Developing and Implementing a Writing and Rhetoric Major at Oakland University
Ostergaard, Lori; Giberson, Greg A.
Composition Forum, v22 Sum 2010
In this critical program profile, the authors provide an analysis of the historical, political, theoretical, and practical circumstances that influenced the development of Oakland University's undergraduate major in writing and rhetoric. Through an analysis of the developmental process and the major itself, this article explores many separate, yet interconnected issues. These include the development and naming of a department of writing and rhetoric, the impact the major has had on the first-year writing program, the theoretical and practical structure of the three-track major, as well as the institutional impact the program has had.
