Not ready for the Technical Communication Certificate? Start with a few courses

With the exception of the Final Project: Guided Practicum, you’re welcome to take individual technical communication courses without enrolling in the certificate.

If you are accepted to the program at a later date, any courses that you complete successfully (that are part of the curriculum at the time you apply) will count toward your certificate.
