BA/BS Professional and Technical Communication

University of North Texas
Technical communicators are in high demand because they make technical topics understandable and use technology to make information usable. The Department of Technical Communication emphasizes evidence-based approaches to preparing students with the technical communication skills required in modern workplaces: writing, designing and coding.

Our B.A. and B.S. programs prepare students for entry-level positions as technical writers/editors, content developers, or usability professionals, most commonly working on teams to create user guides, web content, and proposals in companies within the information technology, consulting, and healthcare industries. Students earning the B.S. will be especially well-qualified for technology-heavy positions (e.g., front-end web developer, business analyst, etc.) in information technology and software companies.

A unique feature of the curriculum is the completion of several client-based classroom projects, which allow you to collaborate professionally with customers and other colleagues. Past projects have included:

  • Creating promotional materials for an art gallery
  • Creating style guides for companies
  • Designing websites for local businesses and nonprofit organizations
  • Editing engineering manuals
  • Redesigning logos
