Graduate Certificate in Writing for Business, Industry, and Technology
This online-only program equips students with the knowledge and training necessary to work in the fields of technical communication, technical writing, and technical editing.
The program is designed for students who wish to communicate technical information effectively in the workplace, either as professional development for those already working in technical fields or as training for a new career. Career prospects include working as writers, editors, and communication specialists for private businesses, government agencies, and community-based programs. There is a growing need in Louisiana as well as nationally for technical writers and editors, and the Graduate Certificate in Writing for Business, Industry, and Technology is designed to help meet that need.
Students must possess an undergraduate degree from an accredited university to be eligible for the program. The certificate program consists of 18 hours–six courses of three semester hours each–which can be completed in one calendar year. All of the courses in the Writing for Business, Industry, and Technology graduate certificate program may be applied to the coursework requirements for the M.A. in English concentration in Writing and Linguistics at Northwestern State University.
