8-Week Course “Writing in Graduate School”

This course, designed as an 8-week writing workshop, is recommended to students in the first semester of graduate school. Students will use the writing assigned in their courses to engage in conversation about writing in their discipline and critically examine academic communicative practices. At the end of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion.

The course would provide space for students (a) to practice reading and writing in ways that are valued in academia, (b) to develop rhetorical awareness (e.g., understanding of purpose, genre, audience, context), and (c) to begin to develop their credibility and academic voice. The course will lay the foundation for strong theses and dissertations.

The course is offered during the fall and spring semesters. To learn more or to sign up for the course, please email Dr. Tatiana Glushko,
