The Certificate in the Teaching and Practice of Writing and the Minor in Writing and Social Change include Writing courses that are a combination of conceptual knowledge and experiential learning. The courses hone your skills as a critical thinker and writer. They also give you opportunities to design and create career-facing documents, lessons, and resources, and get you actively involved in teaching, tutoring, or teaching assistantship.

The practical experiences can help you build your experience profile for teachers’ college, law school, social work and other professional programs, as well as for graduate school or future careers. The courses will empower you to be a thoughtful social critic with an awareness of antiracist, antiableist, and posthuman theory and professional practices that you can take into your graduate studies and workplaces.
