Program aims to help professionals improve writing

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas is offering a new graduate certificate program that aims to help working professionals improve their writing skills.

The graduate certificate in Technical Writing and Public Rhetorics is a four-course program for people working in the technical, business, government and nonprofit fields. Courses will be offered in both online and on-campus formats.

Each course can also stand alone and may be taken by anyone who wants to improve their writing abilities but isn't interested in certification.

Current students can enroll in courses directly and those interested in applying to the full certificate program can do it through the graduate school's online application process.
