Academic writing can be daunting even to fluent non-native English speakers. This course makes clear the expectations for good English academic prose and offers concrete strategies for producing lucid and compelling articles, dissertations, and monographs.
We’ll learn general principles of argumentation and structure before turning our attention to the nuances of style. Special attention will be paid to the difference between German and English academic conventions, but this course is applicable to students from all linguistic and academic backgrounds.
Students are encouraged to submit a writing sample but it is not required. The course includes a one-on-one consultation and individualized feedback of participants' academic writing. This class is taught in English.
