Research & Writing Support

Basic Degree Students

Many member colleges of the Toronto School of Theology (TST) offer research and writing support to their students. Please contact your home college to inquire about what support is available.

Graduate (Advanced) Degree Students

All graduate degree students have access to the Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC), formerly the Office of English Language and Writing Support (ELWS) housed within the School of Graduate Studies. GCAC provides graduate students with advanced training in academic writing and speaking. As you prepare to attend your first conference, to write your first proposal, or to publish your first paper, you will need stronger communication skills than those needed in undergraduate work. By emphasizing professional development rather than remediation, GCAC can help you cultivate the ability to diagnose and address the weaknesses in your oral and written work.

GCAC offers support designed to target the needs of both native and non-native speakers of English: non-credit courses, single-session workshops, individual writing consultations, as well as additional resources for academic writing and speaking. All programs are free, while the workshops function on a drop-in basis, writing centre consultations require an appointment and courses require registration.

Please Note: Basic degree students do not have access to the GCAC services.
