Different Kinds of Writing for Different Majors
Learning college writing is important to a career in more ways. Certain careers require students to learn different styles of writing and students will generally learn to write the various types of documents respective to the major they are studying.
For example, a psychology major will be taught to write differently than a student majoring in pharmacy or journalism. A student majoring in psychology would be instructed to learn to write reports, diagnoses, and in some cases (psychiatry) prescriptions. Some fields, like journalism, require constant intensive writing in college and in the field. Advocacy journalism refers to journalism that is generally portrayed with an opinionated viewpoint. In fields such as sports, entertainment, fashion, and politics, aspiring journalists will need to know how to express these opinions thoroughly.
Learning to write in law school is almost like learning an entirely new language. The legalese used by attorneys and judges can be complicated and exposure to the terms and methods of writing in college will give aspiring lawyers a great head-start to what they will see in the field.
Likewise, teachers learn a different style of writing through the form of lesson plans, unit plans and so on.
