Course Sequence - Certificate in Rédaction professionnelle et édition

The minor and the certificate in Rédaction professionnelle et édition offered by the Département de français prepare students for many positions requiring mastery of writing techniques for information and communication in French. This specialized training program combines theoretical knowledge and practical experience with the tools (particularly computerized tools) and the methods used in many work settings, including institutions, businesses, the public service, public relations and the media.

Students can add the minor only if the program in which they are registered allows them to do so. This minor will enhance their education with specialized training that will allow them to assume writing and publishing responsibilities in their main field, including in scientific, technical, administrative, business and legal writing and publishing.

The certificate is intended for students who may, or may not, have an undergraduate degree, but who are currently working in a writing-related position, for example as an information officer, journalist, executive secretary, communication officer or translator, and who want to refine their expertise. The certificate is also recommended for those who want to change careers and work in writing-related positions, or who have completed an undergraduate degree and want additional training that will lead to new career opportunities.
