The Certificate in Business and Government Communications is designed for information specialists in business and government who write a lot in their work but who are not trained as writers and whose job titles do not include "writer." Coursework in this certificate program can be applied to the Associate of Applied Science degree in Business and Government Communications.
Please note that there is a great deal of flexibility in this certificate. While the composition, speech, math, humanities, and social and behavioral science courses are required, you can substitute any ETWR course for another that you prefer. You can also take any combination of computer and Visual Communication electives that you prefer—even to the exclusion of one or the other.
