Certificate in Professional Writing now Online

| January 30, 2014

What do students across Webster University schools and colleges have in common? Whether they intend to pursue careers in politics, music, human resource management, audio engineering, computer science, or any other profession, they all need excellent communication skills in order to succeed and advance.

Webster's certificate in Professional Writing is now online.

Webster’s certificate in Professional Writing, now available online, takes students through a step-by-step sequence of courses designed to provide the skill to shine in any field.

To fill this need for the widest possible population, the English Department’s 18-hour certificate in professional writing is now available online.

Unlike most professional writing programs, which are loosely-bundled collections of pre-existing courses that teach various types of writing (business writing, technical writing, writing for advertising, etc.), Webster’s professional writing certificate program takes students step-by-step through a sequence of six specific courses intentionally designed to provide students with the broad-based writing, research, and editing skills necessary to shine in any profession or field.

The first course in the sequence, WRIT 2400 Introduction to Professional Writing, is currently full in Spring II, but interested students should contact Karla Armbruster (armbruka@webster.edu), professor and chair of the English Department in the College of Arts & Sciences.

The rest of the sequence consists of courses on Writing in the Workplace, Report and Proposal Writing, Research for Professional Writing, Editing and Stylistics, and Writing for the Web. See the entry in the undergraduate catalog for more information.
