The Bachelor of Science in Technical Communication provides students a hands-on approach to developing the competencies to become professionals in the field of technical communication. Our program’s emphasis on digital environments means our graduates can work as user experience designers, data visualization specialists, or instructional designers. Our emphasis in this program is to create students who can customize information so audiences can understand new concepts and complex ideas.

This approach to technical communication merges technical knowledge and information design with an ultimate focus on understanding audience. Students will take classes in technical writing, technical research, front-end development, and visual design while also selecting a concentration in Data Analysis and Presentation, Technical Training, or User Experience Design.
