Foundational Writing Skills Intensives

Apply Here for April Session!

This series of workshops will offer a refresher on the foundational writing skills, such as sentence structure, paraphrasing, and paragraph organization, that students need to support their graduate academic careers at TTU. We hope you'll consider applying. 

What: This multi-day seminar is an in-person, interactive seminar for incoming graduate students focusing on refreshing and/or developing foundational writing skills.

Learning is cumulative across each session, and participants are expected to attend all four sessions. 

Who: Many graduate students are surprised by the expectations surrounding academic writing at the the Masters and Doctoral levels. If you're a graduate student who has felt frustrated in your research process by writing skills like grammar, sentence structure, or paragraph organization, we'd like to invite you to apply for our Foundational Writing Skills Seminar.

When: Students may choose one of the following seminar options:

    • Spring Seminar 1: February 6, 8, 13, & 15, 1:30PM-3:30PM - Completed!
    • Spring Seminar 2: April 2, 4, 9, & 11, 9:30AM-11:30AM

Deadline: Space is limited. Applications for Spring Seminar 2 are due March 28 by 12PM (noon). Applicants to the program will be informed of their acceptance/waitlist status by March 30.
