Undergraduate Certificate in Technical Communication

Technical Communication—Add to Your Versatility with Skills That Span Industries

A Technical Communication certificate will prepare you for positions in media, government, nonprofit, and business organizations as a critical member of creative teams. You’ll also be prepared to work closely with scientists, computer support personnel, software developers and other technical professionals to analyze, synthesize, and deliver technical information to a wider audience. It’s a valuable standalone credential for communicators or those in a specialized field seeking to grow their communication know-how and abilities.

Skills valued by employers in any field

You’ll become proficient in both the technical and storytelling side of communication, as well as able to discern which channels, tools, or media are best suited to engage your intended audience. Graphic and web design coursework round out the program and provide the design skills needed to convey your messaging.

Expand your professional options

New or seasoned communicators can unlock greater opportunities for career growth through completion of the Technical Communication certificate. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 8% growth in the field of technical writing through 2028. Be prepared with the skills to communicate complex and technical information more easily, as well as to develop, gather, and disseminate technical information through an organization’s varied communication channels.

Valuable education for a communications career or to supplement a technical career

The certificate in Technical Communication adds a robust asset to your resumé, whether your major field of study is communications, science, or technology. The Technical Communication certificate can also serve as a stepping stone toward an undergraduate degree, as the credits may be applied to WilmU’s BS in Communication with a concentration in Digital Journalism.
