The rhetoric sequence at Rockford University consists of three classes:

  • Rhetoric 101 – Introductory Rhetoric
  • Rhetoric 102 – Intermediate Rhetoric
  • Rhetoric 35n – Applied Rhetoric

The applied rhetoric classes provide students with opportunities to refine their skills in critical thinking and practice developing oral and written arguments that respond to the complex situations they will face after graduation, both in the context of the workplace and in the wider public sphere.

Some rhetoric classes include community-based learning projects that contribute to an environment in which students consider how their skills may be applied to resolving issues arising within the context of the workplace and to problems affecting their communities.

Interdisciplinary reading, writing, and speaking assignments will help students discover connections among disciplines and will encourage them to develop strategies for synthesizing the knowledge they have acquired during their study at Rockford University.
