Just as each program has specified coursesfor you to take in order to become proficient in your field, each program adheres to aparticular format style of writing. Groups of professions and fields have adopted preexisting styles of writing. Those going into fields connected to English utilize one formatand style of writing in order for all those that work in the field writes, cites, and publishesthe material in the same way. This standard is true for those in medical fields, in science,in history, and for all the professions.During Week 5 we have explored ?Writing to the Code? in our readings, our lesson, andin the forums. From our lessons you have become aware there are different format stylesfor writing such as APA, MLA, and Chicago for example. In College 100 we introduceyou to the APA (American Psychological Association) format style of writing and haveadopt this standard for page formatting, writing format, and citation and references. Inyour next set of courses you may find yourself using one style of format writing in oneclass and another in a different class. This is due to that subject being aligned with aparticular program of study and profession. As you read published works from variousfields of study in those classes you will begin to recognize the formatting style of writingutilized in articles and studies for certain fields.For this assignment you will learn which format style your intended profession hasadopted in order to recognize the standard in your field as well as to begin learning thatstyle of writing and other format standards to be successful in your APUS classes.Directions?Identify your declared major/program of study.?Go to the APUS Online Library page Style Guides at APUS.
