Program Overview

No matter what industry you are currently working in or looking to enter, language and the ability to communicate effectively are critical skills. As our world has become more complex and globally connected, the need to think strategically and problem solve has also increased. But arriving at solutions and being able to implement them, no matter if it’s within your community or a global business, requires the ability to clearly communicate in written format for multiple stakeholders to understand.

Through project-based work, this online introductory-level writing program goes beyond typical college English creative writing courses to make it relevant for adults in the workforce. Starting by developing and expressing ideas effectively with different audiences in mind, you’ll work your way up to design, develop, research, and execute a writing project from inception to completion. By the end of the program, you’ll have developed writing skills that will allow you to clearly communicate business ideas and take on new challenges as you continue to progress your career.
