Thanks to financial support from The Council of Graduate Schools, The Writing Center is pleased to announce a new 5-week course to be offered early this summer. This class helps graduate students in humanities disciplines to apply their academic training toward alternative career pathways.
Writing For Government and Non-Profits
Tuesday and Thursdays, 10 AM-12PM
May 31-June 30
This five-week, non-credit course introduces GC students in humanities disciplines to career opportunities in writing for non-profit organizations and governments. It explains how to leverage the knowledge and skills gained in a doctoral program in order to obtain and succeed in these roles. Students will learn how to write in these professional contexts and have an opportunity to gain feedback on their work. We will meet and learn from professionals with doctoral degrees who are currently working in these fields. The course will be led by Graduate Center alumna Kara Alaimo. Dr. Alaimo is Associate Professor of Journalism, Media Studies, and Public Relations at Hofstra University and has previously worked as a communicator in the United Nations, U.S. government, and Peter G. Peterson Foundation.
