1. Fundamentals of English Grammar (Oct. 6–27, 2022; Thursdays, 10:00am–12:00pm)
This course is designed for graduate students who want to improve their academic writing by "brushing up" on the fundamentals of English grammar. It focuses on grammatical issues commonly found in graduate student writing, such as the appropriate use of verb tenses. Students also have individual weekly meetings with the instructor and receive feedback on their own writing. To register for this course, please e-mail Dr. Patricia McEvoy-Jamil at Patricia.A.McEvoyJamil@uth.tmc.edu.
2. Academic Writing Style (Oct. 5–26, 2022; Wednesdays, 1:30pm–3:30pm)
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.
