The Graduate Program within the PWR also supports graduate students across campus using a variety of initiatives. Often organized in collaboration with other academic units or departments, some of these initiatives include: 

  • dissertation/thesis writing boot camps
  • graduate writing groups
  • graduate writing workshop and webinar series
  • graduate tutor training 
  • graduate writing course (WRT 621) along with a modularized online counterpart

In addition, PWR graduate faculty teach courses for specific departments, as well as providing consultation and would like to request any resources/support for graduate students or faculty working with graduate students, please contact the Graduate Program Director, Dr. Shyam Sharma ( ).
