Major & Minor
As a technical writing & communication major, you will combine general technical communication coursework (40 credits) with classes in one of four sub-plan areas:
- Information technology and design
- Biological and health sciences
- Legal discourse and public policy
- Environmental science
These 15-credit sub-plans were created to help you prepare for career opportunities in specific fields.
The department also offers a way to supplement degrees outside of the Department of Writing Studies: a 16-credit minor in technical writing & communication . The minor has been crafted to complement your degree program through classes that build technical writing, editing, designing presentations and visuals, and other skills that transfer to today's fast-growing communication industries.
