Introduction

Technical communication is applied workplace communication that makes technical or specialized information understandable and available to many different users. It involves using a range of technologies to craft an ever-broader range of print and digital information products: websites, social media sites, help files, training materials, grants and proposals, and information graphics, to name just a few.

Technical communicators work in many professional roles, such as information developers, grant writers, web interface designers, or usability experts. What do all of these roles have in common? They all focus on creating accessible and appealing communication that has a practical purpose and is intended for a particular audience.

The 36-credit Master of Science in Technical Communication provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the professional, cultural, and ethical issues that shape technical communication. The program balances theory and practice as it helps students develop analytical abilities, technology expertise, and hands-on skills for career success. The program, which is open to applicants from any field, prepares students for technical communication positions in the private, public, and non‐profit sectors and offers professionals the opportunity to advance their careers further.
