ELTA-081 Introduction to Graduate Academic Writing (3)


Students improve their grammatical skills, employ advanced structures in their writing, and become familiar with the rhetorical patterns in their fields of study. Students choose a unique research question, develop a hypothesis, conduct secondary research, and propose additional research methods suitable for their projects. These activities reinforce the content of course readings that examine the expectations and conventions of academic style, form, and ethical conduct within American graduate institutions. Finally, students synthesize their course work and construct a research proposal that illustrates their understanding of academic reading, writing, and research and share their research and proposal via a final presentation. Grading: A-F only. Permission: advisor. Note: No academic credit is received for this course. Credit equivalent is listed only for the purpose of determining full-time student status.
