Public and Professional Writing Certificate

A group of 3 students reviews a writing project in a classroom.

Clear, thoughtful writing is a crucial skill required in many professional contexts. The public and professional writing certificate offers you a focused curriculum that prepares you for those contexts, developing your written, oral, and visual composition skills. In this program, you will refine your writing abilities through courses that feature experiential writing opportunities such as community-engaged learning and an internship. The program culminates in a portfolio of polished written work.

If you are a student considering a career that depends heavily on written communication, or if you're interested in working with community partners or simply want to hone your composition skills, this is a certificate worth pursuing.
