This program develops the communication skills that are needed in industry and professions. The focus is on learning what helps and what interferes with communication, and on ways to transform information into words in a clear and compelling way.

The Certificate prepares graduates to write and edit web pages, instructions, proposals, etc., and to analyse communication needs. Our graduates have the skills to work as technical and professional writers and act as language consultants.

The Certificate can be taken as part of a BA program or on its own. Each course carries undergraduate degree credit and may count as an elective if a particular degree program allows for electives. It is offered as a part-time program and can be completed over two years. The writing courses are all scheduled in the evening.

This program is ideal for current students or graduates who want to complement their liberal arts studies and for people who might be thinking of switching careers or moving into management. It also broadens the skills of people with a technical background and, therefore, their work opportunities.
