Taking ELIP Course Eased Transition into Graduate Program

Despite excelling in her undergraduate photojournalism studies, Lydia Deakin ’12, ’15M felt unprepared for the level of academic writing expected of her as she began a Master of Applied Linguistics.

In order to become better equipped to tackle her responsibilities, she decided to take ELIP 5140: Academic Writing in Graduate Studies.

“I don’t think I would have been nearly as successful with my writing and research without that class,” says Deakin, who earned her M.S. from the College of Arts & Sciences. In addition to her graduate studies, she worked as a writing tutor in the English Language Improvement Program Graduate Writing Lab.
