Computer Proficiency Requirement and UW Computing Resources
Computer Proficiency Requirement
Computer skills are increasingly important in today's culture. The University environment is no different. The MHA Programs expect proficiency using basic spreadsheet, word processing, and presentation software, as well as sending and receiving e-mail attachments and performing searches on the World Wide Web. These skills will be essential both to complete coursework and to communicate with faculty, staff, and fellow students. We have identified some materials to help you assess your computer proficiency relative to our expectations and to help you improve skills that are inadequate.
