Theses, Dissertations and Other Long Projects:

The graduate writing center offers writing assistance for longer projects as well. We can work with students from the nascent stages of their projects to the final submissions. We ask that students interested in working through their long projects e-mail us directly so we can work together and determine the best approach for each student.
