Why learn writing skills.

The ability to write well is a foundational skill for communication in both personal and professional settings. Writing allows you to express thoughts, opinions, ideas, and emotions. It facilitates connections between people and allows them to engage in the type of discourse that can lead to discovery and progress. 

Clear and concise writing that conveys information both accurately and precisely can help guide people’s decision making and actions. The style of writing can express the importance and sense of urgency behind a message. The flow of writing can change the emotions that people feel when reading those words.   

Whether you are writing a script for a podcast, crafting an email to your colleagues, or penning a message to a family member, strong writing skills can significantly improve how the communication is delivered and how it is received.

With online writing courses, any learner can master the skills needed to become a strong writer. Start with the fundamentals in an online grammar course, where you can learn about the different parts of speech, punctuation, conjugation, and sentence structure. Or more advanced writers can practice their storytelling and persuasive writing skills with an essay writing course. Develop your own style by reading and analyzing the works of other writers, and explore how to write in different formats and tones in creative writing courses. 

You can even find courses that teach writing for specific contexts. For example, a business writing class may cover how to relay tough feedback or how to adjust your tone to build consensus.

Clear writing and communication skills are assets in nearly every industry. Regardless of whether you work as a lawyer or a mathematician, you will likely need to be capable of crafting a well-written message. 

But for those who enjoy writing, there are careers that can leverage their talents, including: 

Journalist: Writes news or feature articles for video, online, or print publications. 

Novelist or author: Focuses on storytelling by writing longform fiction and nonfiction. 

Copywriter: Writes marketing-driven copy such as advertisements and emails. 

Communications or public relations specialist: Delivers strategic messages on behalf of a client or an organization. 

Speech writer: Crafts speeches for individuals including leaders or lawmakers.

Screenwriter: Develops scripts for movies, television shows, and other visual media.

Editor: Reviews and revises written materials for accuracy, clarity, and style.  

How to start a career in writing 

Writing takes practice. If you are interested in pursuing a career in the field, it’s important to ensure that you have a mastery of the fundamentals of writing. You can build those skills through instruction and coursework in which you have to apply what you have learned. That means responding to prompts, writing essays, and critically reviewing your work to better understand how you can improve. 

Writing also requires expertise. While you can be a general writer, somebody who wants to pursue a technical writing career, for example, will need background knowledge of that field in order to be able to understand what they are reporting on or writing about. A strong understanding of how to research, interview, and source can also be beneficial for aspiring professionals in this space. 

If you dream of being the next great writer, begin honing your craft with online courses delivered through edX.

Executive Education

Master's degrees, bachelor's degrees, writing faq.

Effective writing is clear and accurate and provides enough context to engage readers and help them understand the message you are trying to deliver. For example, journalists provide context by focusing on the “who, what, when, where, and why” of a situation. 

There are many different types of writing including, but not limited to: persuasive writing, creative writing, poetry, script writing, journalism, nonfiction, academic writing, speech writing, and song writing. 

Learners develop writing skills at their own pace. Developing mastery takes practice and time. 

Sometimes grammatical rules are not universally applicable, which can make them difficult to remember. Everyone has different learning styles and speeds. Memorization can help, but practice is key.

There are online courses that can help you learn how to organize your ideas and develop your voice for a business setting. You can practice writing effective emails, reports, and presentations. 

Aspiring creative writers can develop their skills by taking classes that not only teach them about the essential elements of storytelling, but also give them opportunities to practice writing and critiquing both their own work and the work of other writers.

A top university for online graduate programs

Wednesday, Feb 07, 2024 • Cristal Gonzalez : contact

Mavericks

Three University of Texas at Arlington online master’s programs are among the best 25 in the nation, U.S. News & World Report announced in its 2024 Best Online Programs rankings Feb. 7.

UTA earned high marks for its online graduate programs in the College of Education and the College of Nursing and Health Innovation (CONHI), with special accolades for its programs aimed at military veterans. The rankings recognize UT Arlington’s success at delivering some of the nation’s best online master’s programs for both distance learners and military-connected families.

UTA’s top-ranked programs are:

  • The College of Education’s online master’s in education, which ranked No. 23 out of 303 institutions, a jump of 20 spots from the previous year.
  • The College of Education’s online master’s in education programs for veterans ranked No. 10, up six spots from a year ago.
  • CONHI’s online master’s in nursing programs ranked No. 83 out of 186 institutions.
  • CONHI’s online master’s in nursing programs for veterans ranked No. 19, up two spots from 2023.

Tracey Smith, who recently graduated from the online master’s program in the College of Education, said she would “enroll in the program all over again.”

“I had always heard wonderful things about the program from family and my colleagues in Arlington ISD,” Smith said. “As a full-time working adult, I always saw how my professors were so mindful of my full plate of responsibilities. The faculty also always went above and beyond to make the courses relevant, practical and flexible.”

It’s the sixth consecutive year the College of Education’s online master’s programs have been ranked in the top 60 and the first time its online M.Ed. program was among the top 25. The college offers seven master’s degree programs and two certifications fully online. Programs are offered in either accelerated or traditional timelines, depending on the program, giving students the flexibility they need to complete their studies. Students benefit from the support of quality faculty committed to their success.

“I’m proud to join a program that continues to earn recognition for our commitment to provide access that best serves our students,” said Tim Jacobbe, newly appointed dean of the College of Education. “The rankings highlight our faculty’s dedication to meeting the needs of our on-campus and online students and giving them the preparation to be outstanding educators and leaders.”

This year’s CONHI rankings recognize the school’s excellence at delivering a high-quality online education through a cutting-edge curriculum taught by master faculty. UTA nursing students finish their degree ready to make an impact, having been prepared by the largest producer of baccalaureate-educated nurses in Texas and one of the largest nationally.

"We are grateful to U.S. News & World Report for recognizing the College of Nursing and Health Innovation’s online programs,” Dean Elizabeth Merwin said. “Our faculty works to build upon a legacy of innovative nursing education, both on-campus and virtually. These accolades are a testament to CONHI’s incorporating students’ preferences while still providing a world-class education."

The University continues to excel in delivering educational value to military veterans and their families. UTA is the nation’s top public university for military service members and veterans, according to the 2023 Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges list.

Calderwood Seminar Now Open for Enrollment!

CHID 480A - Spr24

"CHID 480A - The Unconscious Online: Dreaming with(out) Algorithms" is now a Calderwood Seminar! Enhance your brain with this unique writing-focused course 📝 We’ll ask how psychoanalytic logics of the unconscious mind cryptically haunt our devices, platforms, and network technologies–and how these animate our nightmares and dystopian visions of the future. We’ll also use these discussions to identify opportunities for subversion and free play with help from cultural studies, critical design, STS, and Black feminist, postcolonial, and queer critiques–alongside histories of psychoanalytic thought. We’ll ground our discussions by workshopping our own media projects and (auto)ethnographically observing the places our dreams and nightmares interface with algorithms, databases, and the world writ large.
