Many professions both inside and outside of academia demand a high level of writing skill. Our Professional Writing Modules are designed to develop your skills in common formats of professional writing.

Each module consists of two 90-minute sessions. Before attending the first session, participants read a selection of texts on the topic.

Session 1: participants focus on understanding and critiquing the writing principles and advice presented in the readings. For homework, they are asked to compose a short text applying the writing principles discussed.

Session 2: participants offer constructive critiques of the writing samples in order to gain further insight into the writing principles and techniques.

During the Fall Term 2020, we are offering the following three modules: Writing Grant Proposals, Writing Reports, and Writing Academic Papers.

Currently scheduled modules appear below.
