The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Technical and Professional Writing is designed for students seeking advanced preparation for technical and 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 wish to strengthen their technical and professional writing skills, learn about new media and how it affects communication and excel in writing across disciplines. The Certificate is ideal for those who are looking to advance in their current position, learn new skills, or change careers. It 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 can be applied toward a MA in English.
