COM 538 Copy Editing 3.0 Credits

Every aspect of communication, whether public relations, social media, technical or scientific writing, needs to be copy edited before it is released to the public. Copy editing does not just examine spelling and punctuation, but also takes into account the flow and length of the text. Copy editors are also routinely asked to write compelling headlines and accompanying captions for photographs and graphics. In this class, students will look at the mechanics of proper writing, delve deeply into AP style, and will learn to be critical readers who ask questions about the purpose and content of written communication. Students will learn best practices for copy editing different texts.
