They impart research findings for scientific or medical professions, organize information for advertising or public relations needs, and interpret data and other information for a general readership.

Glendon's Certificate in Technical & Professional Writing teaches people to transform information into words that others can understand. You will develop a clear understanding of what helps and what interferes with communication.
