Certificate Programs

The Writing Program sponsors two certificate programs that are designed to support students' professional goals: the Certificate in Journalism and the Leadership and Advocacy Certificate. The Journalism program provides opportunities for students to identify stories, gather facts, and present information clearly and effectively in print, on screen and online. The Leadership and Advocacy certificate is designed to support the career goals of UCSB's aspiring leaders, with a particular focus on learning from community leaders and developing writing, communication, and public speaking skills.
