Announcing WR 599 during winter term!
 
Register now! Space is limited.
 
This popular 3 credit course, offered in a compressed format, will meet weeks one through five of winter term, MWF 8:30-12:00.  It is especially useful for students whose goal is to defend spring term.
 
This course for graduate students from all disciplines will focus on the writing of a thesis or dissertation and is only appropriate for students who have completed substantial research and are ready to write chapters of the dissertation/thesis.
 
Students will work on their projects individually, meet in writing groups, have frequent conferences with the instructor, and participate in class discussions on writing. Students should be in the process of writing their thesis and committed to devoting large blocks of time each week to writing. Some pre-course reading is required (three short books on writing), as is a closing self-assessment.  Subject to cancellation for low enrollment. Address questions to vicki.tolarburton@oregonstate.edu
 
Students who wish to register should contact Dr. Vicki Tolar Burton (email above). In the email, please describe your degree, your project, where you are on your research/data now and where you will be by January 1.  Dr. Tolar Burton will advise if you are far enough along to benefit from the course and give you permission to register, if appropriate.
