Friday, February 8, 2019 - 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
The Writing Center (300 Bessey Hall)
In this 3-hour workshop, the focus will be on understanding the transition from undergraduate to graduate school, navigating the master’s degree coursework and graduation options (thesis, exams, portfolios, etc.), locating and using professional and personal support resources, and writing for degree and future job requirements. Participants will create academic timelines for their master’s work (coursework, conference presentations, internships, etc.) at MSU, and discuss technologies and habits that can help them stay on task. Participants will also discuss how to manage the stress that often pervades the life of master’s students, and how to select and work with a committee. The workshop will end by having participants explore and share their current writing practices, and writing and revision strategies, as well as sharing strategies for overcoming writer’s block and procrastination.
Lunch will be provided at this workshop. Click here to register for this workshop.
