Faculty Interview Series

You know your professors are experts in their fields of study, and expert teachers, but do you realize they’re expert writers, too? No matter the discipline—Management, Biology, Music or English—your professors write in order to discover and share their ideas and research with colleagues.

In our Faculty Interview Series, Baruch professors share their insights about communicating in their disciplines. Click on the videos below to learn about what’s expected from writing in each of these different fields (and why), or if you just want to hear more from the pros—including what’s hard for them!
