Professional Writing

Department Description
"Communication is Key" Written communication is a fundamental requirement for any professional position in today’s age of information. Knowing the content in your field is no longer enough — you must also be able to communicate that content to your colleagues, your clients, the government, and so many others. Recruiters, in fact, list communication as one of the top competencies that they look for in applicants. While various fields teach students the content of specific disciplines, professional writing takes that foundation one key step further: the targeted communication of that content through written, oral, and digital pieces. Study of professional writing enhances the competency to connect with target audiences to achieve specific objectives and through critically assessed strategies. Writing is also pivotal for success in graduate and professional programs. Moreover, the process of writing is a process of discovery: through writing, you’ll learn the key meaning of your information so that you can convey it more effectively. Courses in professional writing foster those connections today. Focused study through the minor and certificate programs enhances the students' transition to the professional world of tomorrow.
