Instructor Website You may find copies of the course syllabus and certain instructional materials on my instructor website: http://www.sjsu.edu/people/deanna.fassett/ Succeeding in a Two-Unit Course At SJSU, students are expected to spend two hours outside of class for every one hour of class time. Because this is a two unit class, you can expect to spend a minimum of four hours per week in addition to time spent in class and on scheduled tutorials or activities. Special projects or assignments may require additional work for the course. Careful time management will help you keep up with readings and assignments and enable you to be successful in all of your courses. Course Description COMM 297 is a two-unit advanced writing workshop, designed to support your growth as professional, graduate-level writers and speakers. In particular, this course will help you strengthen your writing and speaking skills as they relate to preparing and defending your M.A. culminating experience (i.e., thesis, project or comprehensive examinations). This course builds upon what you have learned in COMM 200R: Graduate Study in Communication. In this course we will be concerned with writing not only as a means of compellingly, clearly and concisely demonstrating that we have learned something, but also as an epistemic process—as a means of learning something more fully.
