This course improves the academic writing skills of
students who intend to pursue graduate work in the M.A. in Global Leadership program. Students attain knowledge, skills, and awareness
of various writing tasks, including summaries, critiques
(book and/or article reviews), data commentaries, and
research papers. In addition to analyzing various forms
of academic writing, students also focus on discourse-
level and sentence-level mechanics, vocabulary, and
grammar structures. Students also learn to adhere to APA
formatting while avoiding unintentional plagiarism. Pre-
writing, drafting, and revising are addressed through
interactive exercises such as interviews and peer
editing. To the extent possible, assignments are tied to
the students' graduate coursework.
This course is a supplemental course that does not count toward degree completion of either the M.A. in Organizational Leadership or the M.A. in Global Leadership.
