In addition, the resources of the Department of Rhetoric and Writing, the Undergraduate Writing Center, and the Digital Writing and Research Lab offer opportunities for research and job experience that is valued by employers. Our students have positions in secondary school teaching, community college teaching, higher education technology, humanities administration, higher education administration, publishing, technology, software development, consulting, and writing center administration.
