Missouri State University
Our program, part of the Missouri State University English Department, is the most advanced professional and technical writing program in Missouri.
Professional writing or technical writing is any writing on the job that adapts specialized information accurately and fairly to help readers make decisions, perform tasks, or solve problems. Writing is vital to the success of professionals in all fields and at all levels for two reasons: first, professionals must write often; and second, the quality of their expertise is judged by the quality of their writing. Some professional or technical writers earn their living by writing, editing, and designing printed or online documents and Web sites, or by managing publications departments. Missouri State’s programs in professional and technical writing develop superior writing skills and related problem-solving abilities and computer know-how. Missouri State offers diverse programs, practical courses, expert faculty, up-to-date computer resources, and extracurricular activities in this field.
