GSAS students conduct innovative research every day—in libraries and archives, research centers, labs, and at fieldwork sites around the world. Communicating that research to an audience is what brings it alive, and writing remains the essential platform through which we share ideas, big and small, with our interlocutors.
GSAS is dedicated to helping students from all disciplines hone their writing and communicating skills, as they move from seminar papers to fellowship proposals, articles, dissertation chapters, and everything in between. Articulating complex ideas eloquently, precisely, and confidently is an immense challenge that all academics face. We strive to work with students—on both the individual and group levels—to help them accomplish this feat in their own writing. Ultimately, strong writing and presentational skills are crucial both for completing graduate degrees and for achieving professional success in academia and beyond.
