The Statement of Purpose (SOP) is one of the most important parts of your PhD application, but one of the hardest to write. In this workshop we will discuss:
· How to structure the SOP around a clear, compelling research project.
· How to demonstrate knowledge of a specific field of inquiry.
· How to draw a reader in and generate a narrative based on your past academic and professional experiences.
· How to craft your SOP for a certain discipline or school.
Students participating in this workshop will be asked to bring a draft of their SOP to share with students and faculty.
This is the third installment in a three-part series of workshops designed to assist XE students who are contemplating doctoral study. The first workshop breaks down the application process, the second features XE alums describing their experiences as PhD students, and the third helps students craft their statements of purpose.
All workshops will be run by Sonia Werner, Clinical Assistant Professor at XE.
Participation is open to current XE students.
RSVP in advance is required to attend.
