GS 700: Thesis & Dissertation Writing
This multi-disciplinary course is for Masters and Ph.D. students who are currently writing either the proposal for their degree project or a chapter of their thesis or dissertation. Class sessions cover the conventions for each chapter of the thesis/dissertation across disciplines.

GS 750: Introduction to Graduate Writing
This multi-disciplinary course is for students who want to hone their reading and writing skills early in their graduate degree programs. In this class, students will have the opportunity to improve both their academic writing and their research skills as they write a literature review or a proposal. Emphasis is placed on conventions of scholarly writing and organizational strategies as well as grammar, editing, and usage.
