Navigating the PhD Workshop

Friday, June 11, 2021 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

This interactive online writing workshop is designed to help you develop an individualized plan for graduate writing, especially comprehensive exams, dissertation proposals, and dissertations. Session 2 is designed for students in the latter years of their PhD study.

In this 3-hour workshop, the focus will be on developing and maintaining productive and effective writing processes and practices, especially during these unprecedented times in higher education and in society where we are collectively working through the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing racial and systematic injustice and police violence against the Black community.

Every PhD program at MSU requires comprehensive exams, dissertation proposals, and dissertations. In the workshop, participants will explore and share their current writing practices and be given practical writing and revision strategies. During the latter half of the workshop, participants will draft a plan for developing and completing their dissertations.

A Zoom link will be shared with registrants prior to the workshop.
