Writing for Non-Profits

The Writing for Non-Profits Certificate is available to students in all majors and disciplines who wish to develop or enhance their skills to obtain employment in hospital research and development departments, corporate writing departments, military installations, and non-profit agencies.  Students completing this program will develop a portfolio, suitable for presentation to an employer, that will demonstrate the ability to adjust to real world expectations and engage a setting that is less controlled and less predictable than the classroom.

Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon completion of this certificate, students will:

  • Demonstrate competence with the kinds of writing most commonly used in nonprofit agencies.
  • Acquire experience working in conjunction with leaders/administrators of nonprofit agencies.
  • Create a portfolio of professional work to present to their employers and to prospective employers.*

*Every semester, each student will store his/her projects in an e-portfolio.  With each additional course, each student will continue to build the e-portfolio.

Required Courses (12 hours):
