Applied Stylistics I: Mastering Written Discourse and Texts

The purpose of this course is to give students a thorough knowledge of language structures and of various types of discourse: narrative, descriptive, and dialectical. The objective is to encourage students to write clearly and subtly. This course will prepare graduate students who will study in Paris during the academic year for FREN 6511, an advanced writing course in Paris.
