Technical/Professional Communications Minor
Technical/Professional Communications is an exciting 18-hour interdisciplinary minor offering state-of-the-art preparation for the professional workplace, a perfect complement to almost any major. This program is the most comprehensive minor of its kind in our region.
Students in the College of Business, Arts & Sciences, and Education & Human Services can fit this program into their four-year degree plan. Courses offered include two core courses, in technical writing and computer systems, and additional courses in fields ranging from
computer design to advertising copy writing, from advanced technical writing to internet communications.
Students completing the Technical/Professional Communications Minor will possess up-to-date knowledge and skills that, combined with their major, can lead to careers as a business analyst, editor, market researcher, technical reporter, web developer, media specialist, ad
writer/designer, and publications manager. In addition, these skills are often sought as a technical component in many professional positions that are not primarily technical: grant writer, researcher, marketing manager, and graphic designer among many others.
