Program Overview

The MA in Technical Communication is a great way for students to show their mastery of technical communication skills for industry positions in technical writing, writing, editing, and management - or for further graduate study. Specific aims of study include knowledge of the history, theory, research, genres, principles, techniques, and practices of technical communication.

The program emphasizes five broad areas of scholarship in its scholarship, coursework, and initiatives:

  • Rhetoric, Composition, and Technology
  • Technical Communication
  • Rhetorics of Science and Healthcare
  • Technology, Culture, and Rhetoric
  • Visual Rhetoric, New Media, and User-Centered Design.

The online version of the MATC parallels the onsite version in everything but medium. If students complete the online degree, their diploma will look just the diplomas of those who complete the onsite degree. Texas Tech's TCR program is a leader in innovative course delivery and pedagogy to meet the needs of working professionals.
