2013 Spring Workshops
Carson Medley, Thesis Editor and Advisor for the Office of Graduate Studies, is offering a series of extensive writing workshops for MA candidates who plan on writing a master's thesis or project. The workshops, however, are open to all graduate students regardless of their discipline or culminating activity.
The workshop series will address specific components of the master's thesis and projects as well as general writing and organizational strategies. Ultimately, the workshops will cover all aspects of academic writing and research. The workshop series has been designed and organized in a way that will guide students in a linear path to the April 26 deadline of their culminating activity.
