Credits: 3

Mastering the written word is essential for any sort of career in international affairs, virtually every job in this field entails deploying this skill. International Affairs spans a wide range of phenomena and regardless of background and training, scholars, practitioners, journalists, and writers of all kinds alike often struggle to articulate analysis, insights, and views of such phenomena through writing. This class both explores types of International Affairs writing—from academic essays to more popularly accessible media modes, such as opinion-editorials—and develops students’ writing voices to speak to various International Affairs audiences. Implicit in this undertaking is to understand language, discourse, context, and knowledge of relevant issues in order to design and deploy the construction of narratives in writing International Affairs. The class sharpens and refines writing, emphasizing clarity, logic, vocabulary, synthesizing, and coherence. Skills include outlining, drafting, revising, editing, and proofreading. “Writing International Affairs” can be taken as an elective or also as a platform to write a Thesis.
