The Graduate Certificate in Organizational Communication program is designed to enhance the student’s communication skills so that they may help facilitate effective and ethical organizational practices. The program focuses on providing students the knowledge that is required to initiate positive changes within many corporate environments. In addition, the certificate’s advanced courses may also give students the opportunity to evaluate corporate industry standards and to utilize communication technologies.

Students that earn the graduate certificate have the potential to find careers working within organizational communications, mass media, or public relations. Liberty University’s graduate certificate program delivers course content using biblical and moral viewpoints to enhance the student’s marketability within future careers.

To complete the program, students must finish three courses for a total of nine credits.

All of the courses must be completed through Liberty University with at least a grade of “C”.

Within the program’s course of study, students will begin to analyze modern research, theory, and professional trends within the communications field.

While enrolled in the program, graduate certificate students may use Liberty University’s academic advisors, Online Writing Center, and online library.
