I'd be interested in how many U.S. writers have degrees in technical

Personally, my degree is in information systems. I have only had one
class in technical writing.

My degree is in chemistry. I do have two certificates (basic & advanced) in technical communication from a local college, but they were obtained several years after I entered the profession because a particular client I was targeting required paper credentials to be submitted to their HR department before they would schedule employment interviews or a accept a freelance project bid from a prospective vendor. By the time I got the certificates, that particular company was caught in the bow wave of the bust. Oh, well. At least I (a) met a whole bunch of creative, talented colleagues, and (b) learned a couple of things <grin>.
