Effective Fall 2018
Aligned with the University’s Mission to prepare career-minded individuals through quality education, the University reviews and updates its curriculum on an ongoing basis ensuring its academic programs remain up-to-date, respond to the needs of current industry and employment trends, and prepare graduates with the required competencies and skills to remain competitive.
Therefore, and to ensure that students possess the skills to conduct effective discourse, research, and research writing to be successful in their academic programs, effective Fall 2018, all Graduate Students must have completed a Graduate-level Research and Writing Course as a pre-requisite before advancing into any 700-level courses within their graduate degree programs at Atlantis University. The course is not a requisite for Graduation, but it is a pre-requisite for the upper level courses.
Basic proficiency in English is a necessary prerequisite for successful completion of this course. The course is not intended to teach English; instead, it is designed to introduce graduate students to rhetorical and compositional concepts, skills, and practices.
All students from the Class of 2019 must successfully complete all pre-requisite courses before advancing into 700-level graduate courses. In addition, effective Fall 2018, graduate students who have successfully completed less than 21 credits of their academic program must complete the Graduate Research and Writing course. All other students currently attending a graduate degree at the start of Fall 2018, and with more than 21 credits completed, should visit the Registrar Office to find out if this requirement for upper-level courses applies to them.
Although 500 and 600 level courses are prerequisites before 700-level courses can be taken in a graduate degree program, if prior to the Fall 2018, a student was granted approval to take a 700-level course before the completion of all prerequisites, the student can still opt to benefit from taking the Research and Writing course. Students from the Class of 2018 who have not yet completed graduation requirements at the beginning of the Fall 2018 semester, may still opt to benefit from the course. Finally, Graduate students who completed the program requirements prior to Fall 2018 may not enroll in the Research and Writing Course as part of their program.
