Top Certificate Programs in English

An academic certificate is a formal document signifying that an individual has either successfully completed a course of study in a given area or has passed a predetermined test or series of tests in a particular industry or field.

Just what is a Certificate in English? There is a broad range of material that can be covered in such a course of study, but most English certificate courses include a comprehensive review of both the English language and various notable works of English literature. Depending on the geographic region through which an English certificate course is taken, it may emphasize familiarization with the language itself over a careful review of noteworthy written works, or vice versa.

Students who successfully complete a certificate course in English are prepared for a wide variety of global positions across a broad array of sectors such as education, library science, publishing, writing and politics, among others. They are generally more likely to be hired than their career competitors without an English certificate.

While earning a Certificate in English is a worthwhile investment, the size of that investment varies based on a number of key factors. The length of the certificate course, the prestige of the school through which it is taken and the school’s geographic location all play a role in determining the final cost of the certificate program.

Students who have effectively earned an English certificate are prepared for work in a broad array of areas. Many look to enter the educational sector, while others seek careers in writing, publishing, marketing, media, tutoring, politics or public service. Others use it as a steppingstone to furthering their education or earning a degree.

Students interested in learning more about an English certificate program are encouraged to explore the many options available through our global directory of related programs.
