Writing for Graduate Students

Writing at the Master’s or PhD level presents distinct challenges. This course helps you with the specific requirements of graduate-level articles, reports and theses. Topics include problem areas in style and grammar, the development and organization of ideas, writing abstracts and literature reviews, and incorporating sources and quotations. As well as carefully designed assignments, the course provides opportunities for questions, discussion and exercises.
