The focus is specifically on popular forms such as magazine articles, advertising plugs, writing about global issues and political events, as well as personal columns such as 'fashion,' 'culture,' and 'life.' In this course, we study works by established journalists, reporters, literary writers, and non-fiction essay writers, including professional literature on strategy and leadership.
