Technical and Professional Communication Emphasis (East Carolina University)
East Carolina University's Master of Arts in English with a concentration in technical and professional communication will provide you with theoretical and practical training in professional communication. You will learn about the influence of emerging technologies, techniques, and processes on communication.
The program is appropriate if you are a professional who needs to improve your communication skills or learn about significant changes in communication, if you are a teacher who wishes to add professional communication to your curriculum, if you are a corporate trainer who must deliver training in communication, or if you wish to explore a new career path.
The courses in the online program are the same courses offered in the on-campus program and are designed and taught by the regular faculty. Course delivery is both synchronous and asynchronous, enhanced by various interactive Internet-based learning applications.
No on-campus residence is required, but if you live in the area you may participate in face-to-face activities including technical and professional communication seminars and meetings of the ECU student chapter of the Society for Technical Communication. You may also opt to take on-campus or online electives from other concentrations or departments.
