Arizona State offers several options for studying Technical Communication, including a BS and an MS. In the BS program, students learn how to design, produce, and manage information using traditional and developing technologies. Students can complete the BS in one of two ways: via face-to-face and online courses offered through the Polytechnic campus, or fully online through ASUOnline. The MS curriculum balances theory and practice to ensure students develop the analytical abilities, technology expertise, and hands-on skills necessary for success as a technical communicator. The program prepares students for technical communication positions in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors and will offer professionals the opportunity to further advance their careers. The MS is offered through the Polytechnic campus via face-to-face and online courses.
