University Writing Program (UWP)
Rebekka Andersen has a Ph.D. in Professional Writing and is an Associate Professor in the University Writing Program at the University of California, Davis. There, she teaches courses in professional and technical communication and serves as the Associate Director for Professional Writing.
For several years, she coordinated the internship program for the undergraduate minor in professional writing. In fall 2018, she had the privilege of traveling with a group of UC Davis students to Sydney, Australia, where the students completed internships with local businesses and several courses, including one on Australian life and culture. While in Sydney, Dr. Andersen conducted a study on professional writing internships abroad, examining student learning and program efficacy.
She is looking forward to teaching UWP 198: Writing for Internships in Summer 2021 and working with so many bright and motivated student interns!
