Written Literate Practices, Certificate

To access Certificate Requirements, please view the Curriculum Guide tab.

The online graduate Certificate in Written Literate Practices is designed to provide educators, administrators and communication specialists in commercial and non-profit enterprises with the knowledge of how literate practices and the skills associated with them are applied in various social, civic and organization settings.  Professional literate practices encompass reading and writing generated through the use of both traditional tools for working professionals in rhetoric, digital writing and publication, genre theory and knowledge, and linguistics - the science of language.  Students who earn the Certificate and who wish to apply to the MA in English blended program will have already completed four of the nine courses for that degree.
