Our online Technical Writing GAC is a flexible four-course certificate offered in 8-week sessions and taught by award-winning scholars in the field of technical communication. We offer two pathways for prospective students. For students looking to change careers and become technical writers, we offer an industry-centric pathway that highlights the writing, designing, and production skills contemporary technical writers need. Students pursuing the industry pathway must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited university, but the degree does not need to be in a field related to technical writing. For students who already have an MA or a PhD in a related content area and who want additional technical writing teaching credentials, we offer the teaching-centric pathway that highlights pedagogical and writing strategies for technical writing classrooms. We offer rolling admissions, and new sessions begin every 8-12 weeks.
