Department of Literature and Language

College of Arts & Sciences

The goal of this minor is to offer individuals a series of courses that are well grounded in the theories and practices of technical and professional writing.

The Minor in Technical Writing is designed to appeal to both traditional students and professionals seeking career development skills. Traditional students may progress through the courses as part of their overall undergraduate degree programs. Professionals who are not traditional students may choose to enroll in these courses as part of their career development program. Both groups will receive, upon successful completion of the courses, a Letter of Specialization in Technical Writing from the Department of Literature and Language. For more information see the catalog.
