Faculty Coordinator for Writing in English Majors
Dr. Stephan serves as the English Department’s Faculty Coordinator for Writing in the English Majors; in that role, she develops, teaches, and oversees the 110 series of discipline-specific writing courses, which are dedicated to advancing students’ analytical writing skills and preparing them for their postgraduate careers. She is also one of the lead architects for the Professional Writing Minor, which launched in Spring 2019, and serves as its Faculty Coordinator. Offered in collaboration by the English Department with Writing Programs, this new cross-campus minor prepares students to excel in the written, oral, and multimodal communications of their postgraduate workplaces. It offers courses on such topics as digital writing and web literacy, business and entrepreneurship writing, and nonprofit and public engagement composition, as well as discipline-specific electives drawn from departments across UCLA.
Her essays, reviews, and articles have been published in print and online in The Daily Telegraph (UK), Avidly (Los Angeles Review of Books), Oxford University Press’s Dictionary of National Biography, and Public Books, a digital magazine that brings essays and interviews by scholars to an audience beyond the academy.
