Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Graduate Programs

Program Admission Requirements: Same as Graduate School Admission Requirements .  Completion of certificate coursework while pursuing an MA in English with a concentration in Professional Writing does not automatically count towards a certificate.  Students must apply and be accepted into the certificate program in order for the certificate to be conferred upon completion of coursework.

Program Description: The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Professional Writing is designed for students seeking advanced preparation for entering successful, professional writing careers in fields that regularly recruit new writers, editors, publishing assistants, or promotional talents. The program is especially targeted to those who are already working and need or wish to brush up on their writing and editing skills, but who do not wish, at this time, to pursue a complete graduate program. The Certificate Program in Professional Writing leads to a Certificate awarded by the Graduate School and a designation on the official transcript. Should students wish to pursue a graduate degree, the courses in the Certificate Program can be applied toward a Master’s degree in English with a Professional Writing Concentration. The program requires 15 hours of course work:

Required Core Course:


Electives


9 hours selected from either the creative track, the professional writing track, or a combination of both:
