PhD Writing Issues and Challenges

Course Description: 

This course aims to clarify some of the key distinguishing features and challenges of doctoral-level research writing, both in regard to content and process. While this course is taught in the first year, there will be one additional session held in September of the second year as prospectus writing workshop.

Supplementary Coursework: In addition to the standard core courses, students may be required to take certain master’s level courses during the year should their curricular history indicate gaps in core areas of environmental sciences and policy and basic methods. In such cases, the Doctoral Committee will discuss with the student in advance of the start of teaching which MSc course(s) he/she should be taking.
