Communication and Writing in English Certificate of Competency (NY)

About the Program

This Certificate of Competency in Communication and Writing in English provides students with an opportunity to practice and hone their reading, writing, and research skills in service to their other academic coursework, their current jobs, and their future careers. In compliance with California law, they should not take the courses that comprise the certificate in preparation for transfer-level English; instead, they might take the courses as concurrent support while taking transfer-level English, as opportunities to take their learning further after completing transfer-level English, or as general preparation to read, write, and effectively communicate in the workplace.
