Applied Writing Skills for Graduate Students

This course supports current or prospective postgraduate-level students as they develop practical academic writing skills in English. Lessons will focus on three dimensions of writing that are pertinent to academic contexts: common grammar items, stylistic language choices, and applied writing skills such as summarizing and synthesizing information. Language items will be reviewed and analyzed using real examples of contemporary postgraduate academic texts, such as thesis abstracts, research papers, and letters of intent. Students can apply these essential English writing tools to academic writing tasks such as research proposals, annotated bibliographies, theses, and other academic documents.

Course not offered in the September - October. Future course dates to be announced.
