Overview

Graduate Certificate - Technical Communication

This one-year graduate certificate program offers practical experience for a career in technical, scientific, and computer-related communication. Today’s technical communicators are professionals who create technical content, develop user assistance, design websites, design and deliver corporate training, explain computers and technology to users, create multimedia materials, and develop support systems for consumer products.

You will learn technical writing and editing, graphic and web design, user experience, content strategy, and instructional design. Courses cover the skills necessary to adapt to emerging technologies and launch your career as a professional immediately upon completing the program. You will gain hands-on experience through optional work placement under an employer committed to helping you meet your learning goals.

Skills

Throughout this program you will develop the following skills:

  • Design
  • Research
  • Edit
  • Produce technical documents

Optional Work Term

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment.  The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility.  Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured.
