Graduate Writing Workshop

Next Workshop

Jan. 6–17, 2014  THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

The University of Tampa offers a two-week intensive writing enrichment workshop for graduate students. EWGL 6000 Effective Writing at the Graduate Level is designed primarily for graduate students whose first language is not English, but domestic students are welcome as space allows. Workshop participants must be admitted to a graduate program in the U.S. before being eligible to take the workshop. It is recommended, though not required, students have completed some graduate level study before taking the workshop. The workshop is open to students from all universities, not just those accepted into one of The University of Tampa’s graduate programs. Academic credit is not awarded for this workshop, but participants satisfactorily completing the course work will receive a certificate of completion and may add the workshop to their co-curricular transcript.

The workshop provides graduate level students, especially those whose first language is not English, an opportunity to improve the quality of their writing, learn how to write faster, use discipline-specific terminology correctly and gain a working understanding of the cultural implications of their writing, such as correct documentation of another author’s work. It is designed to help students quickly transition into an unfamiliar educational system and overcome communication deficiencies. Instruction is provided by faculty with experience teaching students in varying cultures and languages, and tutoring sessions are led by current and past graduate students. The format of the workshop accommodates a wide variety of participants.

Register now for this valuable workshop, because the number of participants is strictly limited.
Registering and paying early will reserve your seat in EWGL 6000 Effective Writing at the Graduate Level.
