Writing Proficiency Program

Professor Quincey Johnson working with student

In the work environment, you need more than rudimentary communication skills to be successful. You need to be articulate in both the written and spoken word.

Our recruiters tell us that excellent communication skills are what set an employee apart from the rest. They're also a strong consideration in promotions. The CBE Writing Proficiency Program was developed by the College of Business and Economics with support from McCormick and Company to ensure that our students graduate with the communication skills necessary to flourish in the workplace.

Our Writing Fellows are available to help students refine their business writing through critique and consultation. They will examine the purpose, organization, structure and other high-level components of your assignment. Writing Fellows can teach you to edit and proofread assignments. They will reinforce the idea of the three-step process of writing: invention, revision, proofreading. The Writing Fellows are all graduate assistants in the master's program in Professional Writing at Towson University and are trained in business writing.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to improve their writing and build on their foundation for a promising career.
