Online Degree Programs in Writing

Writers are more than just novelists, poets, and journalists--and they are in demand.

All industries use the professional skills of writers to write advertisements, grants, press releases, and more. An online degree program is a great option if you want to earn a college degree in writing, or if you already work in the field and want further career training.

College Degrees in Writing: Coursework and Career Training
For 2008, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that writers in advertising and public relations had a mean annual income of $71,640. The BLS also reports fierce competition for jobs. Completing an education in writing is the best way to give yourself an edge. Bachelor's degree and certificate programs are available in professional writing, freelance writing, and more. Typical coursework might include grammar and composition, business writing, and technical writing.

If you do fancy yourself the next Hemingway, Plath, or Mencken, a degree in creative writing or journalism is available as well.
