LANGĀ 704. Language Strategies For Literature Reviews. 3 Credits.

Linguistic strategies develop critical reading and oral skills for literature reviews and academic discourse, both for discipline-specific and cross-disciplinary contexts. Computational and corpus-based tools are used to advance each graduate student's practical understanding of the vocabulary, themes, and rhetorical moves in their field of study and on a particular topic. Through comprehensive readings in a student-selected domain of scholarship, the student will gain expertise in a topic of research and practice in speaking professionally about the themes, trends, results and ideas that emerge from those readings. NB: This course is multidisciplinary and designed for graduate writers across a variety of language competencies. It is appropriate for both native and non-native speakers of English.
