Professional and Technical Communication Concentration

English majors Lindsey Pippin, Joseph Hargis, Talisa Cantrell, Chandler Onken, and Emily Wilson

The Professional Communication concentration is designed to expose students to a wide range of communication strategies, theories, and technologies. This concentration offers three options: Scientific and Technical Writing, Corporate Culture, and Information Architecture. The concentration, which is designed to meet students' needs for communicating in a technologically advancing business world, offers courses from multiple disciplines so that students can connect writing strategies from many fields for a well-rounded communication experience. Core courses in this concentration cover topics such as document design, ethics, report writing, web design, technical editing, grant writing, and oral communication. Some students choose to extend their studies by going to graduate school. Whatever career path you choose, Professional Communication can provide you with essential theories, writing strategies, and oral communication skills to help you obtain success.

The University Catalog outlines the curriculum for this concentration and for the minor in Professional and Technical Communication.

We invite current TTU undergraduate English Majors to consider our B.A./M.A. Fast Track Program in English.
