Rhetorica Program

Young Harris College developed a narrowly focused program within the academic curriculum to improve studentsā€™ written and spoken communication. The program, entitled Rhetorica: The Art of Writing and Speaking at Young Harris College, was initially developed as the Collegeā€™s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), a component of the reaccreditation process required by all institutions of higher education accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The programā€™s title, taken from the Latin term for rhetoric, not only emphasizes the programā€™s encompassment of both writing and speaking, but also signals the programā€™s ties to the classical foundation of the liberal arts.

The Rhetorica Program includes two main components designed to improve studentsā€™ written and spoken communication: Writing and Speaking Intensive Courses and the Center for Writing and Speaking.
