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:
- Student success advisors can provide information about the program and degree requirements.
- The Doctoral Degree Coach helps break down the doctoral capstone research into manageable and sequential steps. The Doctoral Degree Coach provides checklists, progression timelines, and goals to track.
- The Office of Research and Doctoral Services website hosts Doctoral Capstone and Project Resources, including program documents, such as the prospectus, checklists, and guidebooks. All doctoral students must follow the guides for their program to produce their final document.
- The Form and Style website has other kits to help students write the doctoral capstone at different stages of the process and beyond:
- The Form and Style website also contains SMRT Guides, which are quick visual “how-to” guides of elements of capstone writing.
- The Form and Style website also has a page specifically designed for Capstone Multilingual Writers. On this page, there are Capstone Multilingual Writing Tips as well as other Capstone Multilingual Resources.
