WRIT 7103 - Work in Progress

Fall, spring. 3 credits. S/U grades only.

Permission of instructor required. Enrollment is limited to: 10 graduate students per section. While ESL students may find this course helpful, it will not address many important ESL concerns like proper use of idioms, articles, etc.


An advanced writing course for graduate students in any department who have substantial work in progress, such as professional articles, theses, or dissertations. Taking a cross-disciplinary and reader-based approach to academic writing, this course helps writers learn how to communicate complex and difficult material clearly to a variety of audiences. Through a combination of short lectures, small-group seminars, weekly writing assignments on your project, critiques, and some one-on-one conferences, WRIT 7103 will prepare students for the demands of academic writing. This course helps advanced writers structure complex data, develop extended arguments, and position their work as a contribution to ongoing debates in their fields.
