About

The Technical Communication program at Missouri University of Science and Technology offers an M.S. degree (either online or traditional) for any student with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline and a strong background in writing and technology.

Overview

At the graduate level, three technical communication programs are offered in the department of English and technical communication: a master of science in technical communication, a graduate minor in technical communication, and a graduate certificate in technical communication.

The English and Technical Communication department offers a master's degree in technical communication (either online or traditional) for any student with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline and a strong background in writing and technology. Because of the rapid changes in technology, particularly due to the effects of information systems, there is an immediate and growing need for highly trained professional communicators to design information. Employers are looking for communicators with sophisticated skills in the integration of visual communication tools with written and spoken communication.
