Purdue’s Online Writing Lab (OWL)

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University is one of the “go to” places for citations, writing, and English grammar for all U.S. students

I would like to learn more about:

“I took Written Communication: Standards and Conventions because I wanted to improve and standardize my writing skills. The most useful part of this course was writing summaries and paraphrasing, and knowing your purpose and audience. I recommend this course for everyone, especially for students who are going to write thesis or take a written prelim exam.”


PhD student

“I took Spoken Communication: Academic Presentations because, for my future career, it is extremely important to be able to communicate in a proper and interesting way. I learned how to use my voice when speaking, the best body language for presentations, and how to best design PowerPoint, among other things. I think with this class, students will gain more confidence in their own communication and presentation skills. I’m glad I now have these skills on my CV!”
