BWC35 Writing Clear, Effective Email (self-study)

Regular tuition $69.00

The Writing Clear, Effective Email self-study course will teach you how to write clear, professional emails. The course materials contain easy-to-understand explanations and a large number of examples so you can learn the skills on your own. It is divided into lessons, like a college course. You have access to the course materials for as long as you want to use them.

The Business Writing Center does not track progress through this version of the self-study course. A version of the Writing Clear, Effective Email Self-study course is available in which the Business Writing Center will record your completion of lessons. The Business Writing Center will notify you or a manager that you have submitted the forms showing that you have completed the lessons. That course is BWC356.

Because the self-study courses have no instructor contact, you will not receive a graduation certificate. If you want instructor contact and a graduation certificate, you should enroll in BWC350.

Volume discounts are available for BWC35.
