Skills Courses: What Do Students Have to Say?
  • "The graduate writing course was a wonderful experience! It helped to reinforce some practical skills and helped to sharpen all of my writing skills. I went into the course as a confident writer but completed the course as a confident scholar-writer. No matter the skill level, this course has lasting benefits and well worth it!"
  • -James-Etta G., Walden student
