In technical communication classes, we study how people communicate at work and we focus on creating content that communicates technical or complex information more easily. Technical communicators work in a broad range of industries from agriculture to medicine to information technology and more.
All degrees and certificates in technical communication may be completed entirely online, although general education courses necessary for the undergraduate degree are typically not available online.
Our graduates typically pursue work in industry, teaching opportunities, or doctoral studies. All coursework may be completed in residence or online.
One of the ways the Technical Communication program stays connected with the profession is through our Advisory Board. Begun in 2018, the Advisory Board consists of alumni and community members, and represents a range of positions and industries in which technical communicators work.
An internship is required for the Technical Communication BS or MS. The internship provides an opportunity to apply your learning in a workplace environment.
