Reading Graduate Texts: A Refresher for Master's Students

Does graduate reading sometimes feel like a monumental challenge? In your master's program you're expected not only to read large volumes of dense academic writing, but you are also expected to find key points and critically assess the reading in a short amount of time. In this session, we will discuss key strategies for the effective reading of graduate texts. Through a series of exercises, you will study how to overcome the habits of a passive reader and discover how enjoyable even graduate reading can be.
