About

In the Technical Communication program of the Utah State University you will enjoy the same high quality level of education, the same award-winning faculty, and the same small class sizes you would otherwise encounter in any USU classroom.

Overview

Who is it for

The Technical Communication program of the Utah State University is designed to appeal to a broad range of students:

  • Working professional communicators. The program aims to help practicing professional writers— people who do communication-intensive work in a variety of organizations, both for-profit and non-profit. Students advance their careers by learning practical skills and the theories that can support or challenge workplace practices.
  • Students considering an academic career. The program introduces students to technical communication and rhetoric as an academic field, and graduates may go on to complete PhDs in the field or teach at two-year colleges.
  • Secondary education teachers. High school English teachers who complete the degree will be able to add technical communication classes to their teaching repertoire, incorporate principles of technical communication into their existing classes, or make the switch to teaching at two-year colleges.
