The Certificate in the Teaching of Writing combines training in writing curriculum components and design, the teaching of grammar, and writing assessment with a supervised classroom teaching experience. Credits earned in the certificate program may also be counted toward your graduate degree requirements, upon the approval of your advisor. You will learn to assess your own and others’ writing based on analytic scoring criteria and employ composition-curriculum components that reinforce one another and your students’ learning experience.
This program is designed for individuals who already have or are working on master’s degrees and intend to pursue college teaching careers. Documentation of the graduate degree or program in progress and relevant prior experience is required for admission.
