Academic Workshops

The English Langauge Center (ELC) offers a series of academic workshops with a particular language theme and focus.

Academic Writing Workshop Series

  • The Academic Writing Workshop series consists of six 90-minute sessions and covers writing topics that are especially relevant to students and scholars who have a first language other than English.
  • Each session has a particular theme and includes writing activities, exercises, discussion, and analysis of participant writing.
  • Workshops are free but limited to 12 individuals, so signing up is important to reserve your place. Details and signup information will be sent just prior to each workshop.
