Lynchburg’s professional writing minor gives students the opportunity to expand their practical, real-world writing skills. In terms of professional development, such skills are second only to job training or discipline-specific knowledge.
This minor will prepare you for careers in writing and editing or complement your studies in other fields — such as business, science, and others — that rely on written communication to disseminate knowledge and reach diverse audiences. You’ll be able to analyze different professional writing tasks and learn how to write effectively and ethically in a range of organizational contexts.
Professional writing is a key skill for many jobs:
- Corporate training
- Higher education administration
- Human resources
- Public relations
- Technical writing
