Science Writing

Course Objectives
This will be a training course in English writing skills for future scientists since a competent command of English writing is necessary for your careers. We will work on a variety of skill training exercises and other formats to help improve your writing ability. In addition, I will also give each of you, personal “one-on-one coaching” throughout the semester to help achieve this. The class will be held “Live” in the classroom and English will only be used as the language of instruction.

Course Prerequisites
Students enrolled in graduate programs at the University of Tokyo are welcome. Any level of English writing ability will be accepted. The lecturer has been teaching as a tenured university faculty member for over twenty-five years and also, has over three decades of experience writing for various Japanese magazines.
