The CAEX program of support courses and workshops is designed to improve Walden University students’ knowledge and skills in reading, writing, statistics, critical thinking, and academic integrity.
The courses vary in length from 4 weeks to 8 weeks and are available for students on both the quarter and semester schedules. Credit is granted for successful completion of each student success course but does not apply toward degree program requirements. All classes are pass/fail.
The CAEX program’s doctoral capstone revision workshops are designed to support students’ writing of their doctoral proposals. The workshops focus on revising and editing the introduction, the literature review, the methods section, the overall proposal, and the postproposal sections. Each workshop is 6 weeks long, and students must submit a two- to three-page excerpt from their proposal to their student success advisor to register. The CAEX program also offers a preproposal workshop designed to help students get started on their premise or prospectus. More information about the CAEX program’s student success courses and doctoral capstone revision workshops is available on the CAEX program page.
