Academic Writing for Graduate Students: Positioning Yourself as a Junior Scholar

This non-credit, 10-week course is designed for graduate students for whom English is an additional language (EAL). The course focuses on writing tasks that may be required in the earlier stages of a graduate program, and covers Units One to Four in the textbook.  You will learn how to apply your analytical skills to the discourses of your chosen disciplines and to explore how effective academic writing in Western scholarly tradition is achieved in order to position yourself as junior scholars in your chosen academic communities.
