Academic Writing Skills

Students enter Antioch with widely varying levels of writing skills. Since Antioch emphasizes writing in almost every class, it is important that students develop their writing skills during their time in the program. To support both undergraduate and graduate students in becoming effective academic writers, the AUSB Writing Center provides peer-based writing assistance throughout the school year. Please see the “Student Services” section of the catalog or visit for more information on Writing Center services.

Undergraduate students receive credit for undergraduate writing classes. Students who need help with particular academic formats (e.g., American Psychological Association format) should speak to their Advisor or visit the AUSB Writing Center about various forms of help that are available. Graduate students who need to improve their basic writing skills may enroll in undergraduate writing classes on a not-for-credit remedial basis.
