About This Degree

In the online Master of Technical Communication (MTC) program at USU, you will study communication and writing that gets things done—in business, community activism, government, and other contexts. You will study social media technologies, editing, inclusive communication, and more. Our program works to cultivate graduate students who are socially aware and ethical writers, who can adapt to new technologies. This program is designed for working professionals, regardless of where you live: our online classes are asynchronous, and there is no out-of-state tuition.

Graduates of the MTC program work in a variety of careers, such as social media managers, technical editors, grant writers, and usability experts (who make technology or communication more user friendly). Some of our students are middle school or high school teachers who want to bring professional and technical writing into their classrooms, and some graduates of the MTC program go on to earn a PhD and pursue careers in higher education.
