Editing and Publishing Certificate

The Editing and Publishing Certificate (EPC) is a career-oriented curriculum that allows students already attracted to the field of editing and publishing to pursue a cohesive track where they gather editorial tools and practice them in real-life workplaces. Because our offerings uniquely combine literary, creative, digital, and technical writing skills, the certificate allows flexibility for students to build on their individual editorial interests and pursue related careers.

Students must complete 15 hours of the following courses with a 3.0 GPA or better: Engl 336; Engl 357; Engl 405; Engl 451, 452, 453, or 477; 498 (2 hours); and 499 (1 hour).
