Our first year courses are offered in a number of versions ranging from a Multidisciplinary course to ones linked with specific courses in other departments. Each one, though, teaches writing as a means of discovering, developing, and revising ideas to help prepare students for success in academic studies and in subsequent careers.

Composing Our Winnipeg: Rhetoric of/and the City
Living in a city--especially when we live in the same city for years—we tend to move through it inattentively, getting from place to place. There is a difference between looking and intently seeing. One of our projects was to walk slowly through familiar ground, to observe, map, listen and even record sounds of the places we are used to passing through, denaturalizing familiar ground . . .

Students interested in the Rhetoric and Communications Major or the Joint Degree/Diploma program should contact the Department of Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications (786-9117) or view our web site for basic information. Students are also encouraged to seek advice from RHET faculty about appropriate courses.
An alternate path to the B.A. pursued by some students is to do a Public Relations diploma with Continuing Education (for which 30 hours of transfer credit are granted), and then complete the requirements for a Rhetoric and Communications degree in the remaining 60 credit hours.
