What can the Writing Center do for graduate students?

Like all other members of the PSU community, graduate students are invited to get feedback on their writing for individual writing assignments using our regular consultations by chat or email. Specially for graduate students, we also offer the Graduate Writing Studio (GWS), which lets you get more intensive feedback from a full-time faculty member on your master’s thesis or doctor of nursing practice project, extended research or creative project, or article for publication. You can find the application for the graduate writing studio here:

For graduate teaching assistants, our full-time faculty are also experienced writing teachers, and we’re happy to help you develop writing assignments for your courses, develop strategies for giving feedback on student writing, and plan classroom instruction to improve student writing. GTAs are also welcome to use our classroom presentations on using APA or MLA format, writing the review of the literature, or developing a research project.

And finally, we can assist with graduate school applications and personal statements and preparation for the verbal section of the GRE.
