Writing is a central activity for graduate students and learning to write at the graduate level may be challenging to some. Mercyhurst's Writing Center supports graduate student learning and success by providing assistance to all graduate students at any stage of the writing process. The focus of the Center is on the improvement of the student's understanding of their writing and revision abilities rather than the correction of writing projects. Graduate students may bring any project to the Writing Center, such as personal essays, research papers, résumés, business letters, or lab reports. Writing consultants are able to help graduate students write with the style and tone expected at the graduate level and help with APA, Chicago, and MLA citation styles. The Writing Center is located on the main level of the Library.
Graduate students taking online courses may submit writing projects through the Online Writing Center (OWC) and may request either a virtual writing consultation or a Document Review. Please visit the Writing Center’s HUB page for more information about the Center, its hours of operation, and information on how to schedule a consultation.
