Lynchburg’s Professional Writing minor offers students the opportunity to expand their practical, real-world writing skills. Such skills are second only to discipline specific knowledge when it comes to professional development.
This course of study prepares students for careers in writing and editing, and also complements disciplinary study in other fields — such as business, science, and others — that rely on written communication to disseminate knowledge and reach multiple, diverse audiences.
Studying professional writing helps students in jobs such as:
- Technical writing
- Public relations
- Human resources
- Higher education administration
- Corporate training
Mission and Goals of the Minor
Students learn to analyze a variety of writing situations and to write in an effective and ethical manner in a range of organizational contexts.
