The Academic Communication Program coordinates and implements opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral associates to master the necessary communication skills as they move toward the attainment of their academic and career goals.

Credit-bearing courses focus on best practices for preparing thesis chapters ready for submission as manuscripts, gatekeepers’ expectations about research submitted for publication, practical strategies for increasing the likelihood of favorable reviews from journal editors, and the contemporary roles of theses and dissertations.

Non-credit seminars provide aspiring scholars with a research writing framework they can employ to disseminate research in their fields of study.

Hands-on workshops address a range of graduate writing needs and are provided upon request from student organizations, graduate programs, faculty and staff.
