The Centre for Academic Writing does not offer a degree program or certificate but does offer courses in academic writing.
The Centre for Academic Writing assists students to become effective independent writers, within both their academic life and elsewhere. The primary means of achieving this objective is through the centre's individualized tutoring program. All Faculty of Arts students are eligible to enrol in this program and take advantage of the opportunity to work on their writing with one of the centre's experienced faculty. The centre also regularly offers mini-courses on various issues related to writing effectively in university.
In addition, students can enrol in one of the centre's credit courses on writing in the humanities or the social sciences. These courses provide the opportunity for students to develop their writing in all phases: research, composing, drafting and revising by learning to integrate the latest research on the writing process into these activities.
