Kits: Doctoral Multilingual Writers Kit


These resources are for doctoral multilingual students who are working on their final project, doctoral study, or dissertation.

The challenges of writing a project study/doctoral study/dissertation are not unique to multilingual and international students. However, cultural or linguistic differences can often amplify these challenges. This kit will help students access resources for multilingual writers completing a doctoral capstone.

The first step to overcoming the challenges of writing a project study/doctoral study/dissertation as a multilingual writer is to become familiar with the expectations of writing at the doctoral level at Walden. Use the resources below to begin:
