Academic Writing

Writing Pad, Hand, Clipboard, Computer, Workplace


Academic writing in seminary is very different from the general writing that one does in daily life. It is writing on a graduate level which means it is more formal and academic. For instance, good academic writing will include the following--

*Writing clearly

*Using good grammar

*Proper language mechanics

*Sophisticated vocabulary

*Using academic resources

*Citing resources properly. 

In addition to general tips on writing found in this libguide, I have gathered more in-depth information on academic writing, please consult the "Library Resources for Further Exploration" and "Online Writing Resources." Both of these can be found at the bottom of the content tabs on the left. Quality writing can be learned and should be a skill that one is constantly improving.
