Technical Writing and Editing - Micro-Certificate

In the Technical Writing and Editing undergraduate micro-certificate, students study, analyze, write and edit a variety of technical documents, such as manuals/instructions, websites, reports and proposals delivered in print or online. Students spend two terms strengthening their writing and editing skills individually and collectively, through workshops and a process approach that advances critical thinking skills. Students then spend a term learning about writing and providing feedback on a multitude of technical documents. At the culmination of the micro-certificate, students’ command of grammar, sentence construction, and style is advanced and refined.
