The Writing Certificate

The writing certificate provides students of all majors (except English) the opportunity to enhance their writing abilities and have this expertise appear as a credential on their transcripts. There is a national demand for employees who have strong skills in writing. For example, a survey of employers conducted for the Association of American Colleges and Universities revealed that 89% of those surveyed identified the ability to communicate effectively as a key intellectual skill for successful employees. This certificate provides a vehicle for enhancing the intellectual and personal development of students by allowing them to strengthen their writing skills and, at the same time, explore new topics and issues related to their personal interests.
