NOTE: Certificate applications must be submitted before the end of the semester in which all required coursework is completed. Certificates will be mailed following graduation each semester.
The NEW Certificate in Strategic Communication (CSC) replaces the Public Relations certificate.
Please note that we no longer offer a certificate in Technical and Professional Communication.
Certificates offer students the advantage of earning a credential in a focused field. We designed this program to allow working professionals the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage in the workplace.
What Students Say
"I would like to give a shout out to CU Denver Department of Communication! I graduated in the Spring of 2015 and was fortunate enough to be hired by a fantastic Fortune 200 company the fall before graduation. The value added to my resume was second to none after I completed my Public Relation and Medication certificates. My employer was extremely impressed by the courses taken to complete these certificates, which still has me receiving job offers from corporate recruiters often! As an alum I take pride in being able to differentiate my expertise in the workforce by proudly displaying my certs on my resume. The practicality of both certificates is valued highly by top talent recruiters, which has served me very well since graduation." -- Michael O'Connor, BA, 2015
