Known as one of Regis College's most transformative classes, these sections of Writing Analytically focus on social observation, analysis, and advocacy.
Note: These sections (En/Route) require a year-long service learning component, for which students will receive an additional credit hour both semesters.
Fall Semester Course Options
RCC*200, Sections RU01 and RU02: Writing for Social Justice (3 semester hours)
In this section of Writing Analytically, we will focus on writing which practices being for and with others through social observation, analysis and advocacy. We will approach this theme in two ways: first, by means of weekly fieldwork at a Denver program or agency seeking to address basic human needs and to promote justice; and, second, by means of reading, reflection, discussion, and writing at Regis University. Our goal in taking a double approach is to trace the connections between academic life at Regis and life in and beyond the city of Denver. For more information on this section, visit enrouteregis.org
RCC*200 Section RU03: Life Stories (3 semester hours)
Telling stories is a way to make our experiences meaningful. Hearing other people’s stories is a way for us to understand who they are and what they care about. By sharing our stories, we can find the places in our lives where we connect with others and see our common humanity. In this seminar, through service and personal reflection, we will look at what goes into — and comes out of — the stories we make.
All three sections include enrollment in PC 231A: Service/Community-Based Learning (1 semester hour)
