"This program has made a significant difference to me both personally and professionally so it is wonderful to feel that it was such time and money well-spent."

"I was initially apprehensive about the Technical Communication Certificate Program, mostly because I don't consider myself technologically-savvy. However, throughout the program, I discovered that being a technical writer isn't necessarily about being tech-savvy--it's about being a strong communicator, critical thinker, and problem solver. The instructors, as well as my classmates, were incredibly supportive and were able to help me overcome my fears of having my work edited. This program equipped me with another set of skills that will help me in the future--whatever it holds."

"I can't say enough about the value of this course, these instructors, and the collaboration with these students. I consider this course essential as an introduction to the Technical Communication industry. The value of being in a class with like-minded professionals was so conducive to my professional development. Collaboration with everyone in the class brought my best work out of me, and the knowledge and encouragement of each of the instructors prepared me for the job hunt and interview process. The network that I became a part of has already paid dividends, and will continue to do so indefinitely."

"This Duke program is wonderful. I am so thrilled. I have learned
information in each class that I can immediately apply to my job. I smile
the entire time in class. It makes me remember how much I loved English
class 500 years ago, and makes me so incredibly grateful for Duke. It is
really divine timing."
