Patrick Mose ‘12M contemplates his improved academic writing skills.

‘Comfortable in my Writing’

While working on a Ph.D., Patrick Mose ‘12M always set the highest goals for himself in the field of academia. However, he knew that the road to success is paved by strong academic writing skills.

“I took ELIP writing classes specifically because I wanted to improve my skills specific to my discipline,” says Patrick Mose, now an instructional technologist in the College of Fine Arts at Ohio University. Mose earned an M.A. in Linguistics from the College of Arts & Sciences.

“There are some practices that most people coming from different international backgrounds don’t know – such as issues to do with plagiarism. ELIP classes really helped me, and now I’m very comfortable with my writing,” he says. When preparing term papers, theses, and dissertations, effective writing is crucial.

“I strongly recommend ELIP to all students, and not just international students!”
