Writing at the graduate level poses some new challenges to what you might be accustomed to in your undergraduate studies. For one thing, you are expected to know how to conduct research and find peer-reviewed, credible sources on your own while also being able to craft sophisticated, well balanced pieces of writing of a variety of genres. Many graduate school professors leave little, if any, room for writing instruction because the course foci tend to be more specific and geared toward a particular degree. Nonetheless, graduate students need as much support as any student. Many folks who return to school to pursue a graduate degree do so after having been out of the classroom for some time. Technology changes at lightning speed these days, and those changes directly impact the classroom, whether online or virtual. This section will help you “get back into shape” with your writing, if you’ve been away for a while, or it can help teach you what you need to know to excel in your courses. We start with a self-paced writing tutorial that covers basic writing needs, prewriting strategies, how to complete SWOT analyses, and how to write effective editorials.
