PhD/ThM Students


PHD/THM PROGRAM SCHEDULE
FALL 2013

Roundtables

Roundtables offer advanced graduate students the opportunity to interact with faculty on contemporary issues and academic concerns, dinner included. The following roundtables are scheduled for Fall 2013:

          Professional Writing and Editing, with Carl Trueman and David Mills, editor of First Things

Forums

In the PhD/ThM forum, students deliver papers and receive feedback from their peers. Its purpose is to help students gain experience presenting their work in a conference-style setting. Feedback can help the writer improve content and clarify ideas before submitting for courses or for publication.

          Dates: Sept. 20, Oct. 18, Nov. 15. Time: 2:00-4:00 p.m. Location: Van Til, Room 6

To schedule a paper, please e-mail a copy of the paper with a 100 word abstract (or just the abstract if the paper is not yet complete) to Todd at ctw@wts.edu. Please indicate the date you would like to deliver the paper and, if necessary, your preferred time slot (2:00-3:00 or 3:00-4:00).
