The Certificate in Editing and Publishing core requires two editing courses from the Creative Writing and Professional and Technical Communication concentrations within English, supplemented with relevant writing electives. Students work with the Certificate advisor to source and complete a required publishing internship. In their final English course taken as part of the Certificate, each student must compile and present an e-Portfolio.
