Master of Science in Technical Communication

The discipline of technical communication focuses on the study of visual, written, and spoken communication in a wide variety of professions. It enables people to use technology effectively, to understand technology, and to make effective decisions about real-world problems. A degree in technical communication is ideal for students interested in web design and usability, technical writing and editing, online help development, content development, managing documentation, and information architecture. Most of your courses will be traditional "classroom" courses that require you, your classmates and your teacher to come to campus at specified times and meets for lectures, discussions and other activities. Some of your courses, however, will be completely online. We believe that a technical communication student needs to learn how to function successfully in online environments. If you choose this option, all of your courses will be either online synchronous (with live meetings in Adobe Connect or some other virtual environment) or online asynchronous (with recorded lectures and submission of work on Blackboard). On rare occasions, you may have to come to campus for degree-related business, although, if necessary, we can usually find ways around a campus visit.
