Overview of the Online Communications Certificate

The Indiana Wesleyan University Communications Certificate program affords students the opportunity to develop proficiency in both written and oral communications, along with a solid foundation in communication theory. The certificate serves as documentation of this accomplishment, as does the transcript notation.

Completion of a certificate program can serve as a signal to prospective employers that you are a person with the drive and determination to excel. Not only will the course of study enhance your communications abilities, but earning the certificate also will distinguish you from others in your workplace or employment market. Becoming a better communicator can only serve to improve your personal relationships, as well.

The Communications Certificate program is available to students currently in associate and bachelor's programs, and also to students who are registered as unclassified. Degree-seeking students must earn at least nine of the 15 certificate credit hours at IWU. Unclassified students must complete all 15 credit hours through IWU to be eligible for the certificate.
