Services for Graduate Students

Resources for Graduate Students
The Brandeis Writing Center is pleased to offer  peer-review services specially designed for our graduate student community. Our tutors are graduate students themselves, who are happy to work with their peers on all forms of advanced academic writing, including dissertation proposals, MA theses, chapters, articles, and conference papers. 
Feeling stuck on a draft? Not sure if your article is comprehensible to folks outside your field? Are you recently returned from fieldwork, full of ideas and feeling uncertain as to how to conceptually divide up your chapters? We can help you think through any writing challenge you are facing, at any point of the writing process. Whether you would like to meet with someone in a closely related field, or get a completely outside perspective, you can check our list of consultants to find the peer-reviewer that's right for you.
 Note:  Given the length and complexity of graduate writing projects, MA and PhD students are allowed to sign up for double sessions (90 minutes instead of 45 minutes). Students working on papers of 30 pages or more may book up to two 'double sessions' per month, in addition to attending regular sessions. If you are interested in booking a double session, please email us with your name, program, and a brief description of what you would like to work on.

Please be aware that we are not an editing service. We do not offer line-by-line proofreading of large documents, but we can provide strategies to help you do this on your own.

Also, please note that we do not provide any distance services at this time. We can only offer tutoring sessions in person.
