Welcome to Fall 2016!

Welcome to Fall 2016 at Kean University.  Or, if you are returning or joined us for our Invitational Summer Institute or College Ready Writing Program this summer, welcome back!

As we embark upon yet another exciting academic year, we would like all of our returning and incoming graduate students in the English Writing Studies program to be aware of the resources available to them, as well as a new addition to our KUWP staff.

Course Schedule for Fall 2016
By now all of you are registered for the semester.  But if you decide on last minute changes or are still stumped on what to take this fall, we have a variety of courses available to our graduate students. You will find a comprehensive list of said courses and their information here on our website and on KeanWISE.

Many of you are already members/affiliates of the Kean University Writing Project.  The KUWP and our MA in Writing Studies Program are “close cousins”, and I am happy these two special communities have so much overlap in the work we do together.  The Kean University Writing Project would like give a warm welcome our new graduate assistant Hailey Carone!

Have Questions?
Graduate students needing help with questions about general procedure within any program should contact Robin Roebuck, the Managing Assistant Director in the Office of Student Support Services at
