Course Description: This writing workshop (3 credits) for advanced graduate students from all disciplines focuses on the writing of a thesis or dissertation. Students will write individually, meet in writing groups, have frequent conferences with the instructor, and participate in class discussions on writing as well as peer feedback sessions. The goal is to produce a significant amount of text for the dissertation/thesis during the 5-week course.Students should have their research data and be writing or be ready to write chapters of their thesis/dissertation when the course begins. It is important that those enrolled be committed to devoting much of their time to writing during the weeks of the course. In addition to class time MWF mornings for five weeks, students should expect to write 12 hours a week outside of class. Some pre-course reading and writing is required, as is a closing self-assessment. For permission to register, please contact
