GSC Writing Studio
Make appointments for one-on-one consultations with one of our Writing Studio Instructors to address concerns and develop strategies for completing the grant researching/writing process.
Graduate Writing Studio Philosophy:
The Graduate Writing Studio (GWS) exists to provide writing support to credential and graduate students in order to meet the increasingly complex requirements of advanced degree writing. Faculty instructors are available to meet and collaborate with students in order to help them plan, organize, and carry out their required writing tasks – whether they be small writing assignments for postbaccalaureate or graduate coursework, or larger, often semester-long culminating projects such as a Masters project, thesis or professional portfolio. We strive to empower students with a clearer understanding of academic writing processes and a continually developing writing proficiency in various academic genres.
We are here to relieve credential and graduate students’ writing-related anxiety, and to overcome obstacles in the writing process. We will help you to bolster the strengths of and combat the weaknesses in your writing. We are here to help you succeed in your post baccalaureate program!
