WCSS 3200 - A Practical Course in APA Style


(1.5 cr.) This 4-week course focuses on the most relevant aspects of scholarly writing as presented in the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Instruction and practice is provided in references and citations, reducing bias in language, headings, lists, statistical and mathematical copy, italics and capitalization, numbers style, and table and figure formatting. The course is designed to help prepare students for successful writing experiences in their coursework and major writing projects. This course focuses on grammar only in regard to APA style nuances. Similarly, while statistics and presentation of research findings are covered in the APA Manual, this course does not offer instruction in the presentation of advanced research nor is it a course in research methods. Weekly assignments are based on the required text, Mastering APA Style: Student’s Workbook and Training Guide. Note: This course is for quarter-based master’s-level students.
