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 to present information and communicate in French. They combine theoretical knowledge and practical experience with tools and methods used in many work settings, including educational institutions, businesses, the public service, public relations agencies and the media. 

If your program allows you to, you can add the minor. It complements your program with specialized training that allows you to take on writing and publishing responsibilities in your main field, including scientific, technical, administrative, business and legal writing and publishing. 

The certificate is for you if you already hold a writing-related position such as information officer, journalist, executive secretary, communication officer or translator, and want to refine your skills, regardless of whether you have a bachelor's degree. The certificate is also for you if you want to change careers and work in one of these positions, or if you have completed a bachelor's degree and want additional education that will lead to new career opportunities.

This program is offered in French only. 

The table below includes only discipline-specific courses. Please refer to the Academic Regulations for information on including a minor to your degree.
