The professional rhetoric and writing minor has included some of my favorite classes at BYU. Nowhere else can you discuss and apply philosophy all in one class and simultaneously learn how to be a better citizen and communicator. This minor applies to every major. I am a bioinformatics major and I have used professional rhetoric and writing in my other classes, my research, my career search, and my personal life. Rhetoric classes have introduced me to a wide variety of people from other majors and with different perspectives from my own. Through the minor, I have realized my own worldview and have been able to discover the worldviews of others. Whether your goal is to gain hard skills to help you in a career or soft skills to help you be a better person, the professional rhetoric and writing minor can help you do that.
