In this course, for this semester, students will:

-- Gain an understanding of the thesis research, writing, and defense process
-- Improve areas of linguistic weakness
-- Review key writing processes, particularly outlining and drafting
This course is designed to prepare graduate students rhetorically and linguistically for the kinds of academic writing they will be required to do during their MA program career. In the fall semester, students will become familiar with academic culture, products, and writing expectations, and then will learn how to execute specific academic writing tasks and skills that are used for their other courses’ writing assignments and for their own research. In the spring semester, students will revisit those tasks and skills and apply them in more complex ways to larger writing projects like a project proposal. The class sessions will consist of lectures, group discussions, and activities focused on each session’s topic.
