The program provides significant opportunities for students to hone their research and writing skills, enhance their multimedia production capabilities, and increase their ability to communicate in the context of their primary field of study.

Technical & Professional Writing Minor: 18 credits

Note: Minimum grade requirement of a C- or better in the minor.

Additional Information
