Employers in all sectors consistently rank communication skills as being crucial to success and indicate an ongoing need for employees at all levels who can communicate effectively. However, today’s ability to communicate effectively requires not only traditional verbal skills, but also facility with visual communication, with digital media, and with the tools used to create and produce communication.
The online Technical Communication graduate certificate enables students to extend or develop technical communication knowledge and skills that they can apply in their workplace, regardless of discipline. The certificate provides students with both conceptual knowledge and hands-on skills in technical communication. The certificate is an excellent complement to engineering fields and other technical disciplines; it is also an effective way for entry-level technical communicators to strengthen their credentials.
Applicants must fulfill the requirements of both the Graduate College and the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts.
Applicants are eligible to apply to the program if they have earned a bachelor's or master's degree, in any field, from a regionally accredited institution.
