Enroll in the SPH Library's Canvas Course

Be sure to enroll in our Canvas Course SPH Library and Learning Commons to keep up with the SPH Library! 

SPH Writing Support Services (WSS) will offer two FREE mini-courses:  Academic Writing Style and Advanced English Grammar and Punctuation for Graduate Students via Cisco WebEx, starting the week of March 4, 2024. Each mini-course will meet two (2) hours per week for a total of four (4) weeks. 

Academic Writing Style (March 5 – April 2, 2024, Tuesdays, 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)

This course is designed for graduate students who want to familiarize themselves with the stylistic choices preferred by English academic writing, which include word choice, flow, and concision. It strives to help students become more confident academic writers to meet the academic challenges encountered at UTHealth School of Public Health and beyond. To register for this course, please e-mail Dr. Zhiling "Willa" Wu at 

Advanced English Grammar and Punctuation for Graduate Students (March 7 – April 4, 2024, Thursdays, 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.) 

This course is designed for graduate students who want to improve their academic writing by focusing on grammatical issues and punctuation errors commonly found in graduate writing. Students should have a knowledge of basic English grammar, including the eight parts of speech and their functions in sentences; the verb types, moods, tenses, and voice as well as their uses in scientific writing; and the types of phrases, independent clauses, and dependent clauses as well as their roles in building sentences. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to (a) use semicolons and commas with coordinate and non-coordinate (cumulative) adjectives, phrases, independent clauses, and dependent clauses; (b) fix comma splices, run-on sentences, and fragments; and (c) use commas and semicolons with conjunctive adverbs and transitional expressions.  To register for this course, please e-mail Dr. Patricia McEvoy-Jamil at 

Note that neither course will be offered during Spring Break week (March 19 and 21). Spaces are limited, so please contact the corresponding Writing Support Services team member at your earliest convenience!
