SCHOLARLY WRITING

 

Summer B 2019 Scholarly Writing

 

The Summer B Scholarly Writing class will begin  July 1st and will end August 7th.

The class will meet 5:10 p.m. to 6:25 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays in 214 Matherly Hall.

 

The last day to register for the class is June 21st. The last day to drop the class is July 3rd.

  

Scholarly Writing (formerly EAP 5845 and EAP 5846) is designed for international graduate students who wish to improve their written academic English skills. The course teaches students to gain practice producing and analyzing common academic writing genres. The course seeks to develop students’ ability to write concisely with natural cohesion and flow. It also addresses common grammatical issues. These aims are achieved through direct instruction, group work, practices, and individual writing times.

 

Scholarly Writing course is offered as a non-credit class lasting six weeks. This class is not eligible for a tuition waiver and is not offered as a distance education/online class. The cost of a six-week section is $350.

ACADEMIC SPOKEN ENGLISH

 

Advanced Oral Proficiency (non-credit):

 

The Summer B Advanced Oral Proficiency class will begin July 1, 2019 and will end August 7, 2019. 

 

The class will meet from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm on Mondays and 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm on Wednesdays in 320 Yon Hall.

 

The last day to request enrollment or drop the class will be Wednesday, July 24th, 2019.

 

The purpose of this course is to diagnose student fluency problems in English and to introduce self-practice methods and online resources to aid students interested in advancing their oral language proficiency.  While not intended as a SPEAK Test preparation course, a commitment to improving spoken fluency in English may result in an improved assessment on oral proficiency tests.  Students will exit the course more aware of their individual fluency challenges and with a clear idea about how to make progress on their own. 

 

The Advanced Oral Proficiency course is offered as a non-credit class lasting six weeks. This class is not eligible for a tuition waiver and is not offered as a distance education class. The cost of a six-week section is $350.
