Subject:QUESTION: Tech Writing/Tech Communication/Graphic Arts Masters Programs on Internet/Correspondence From:Faith Harvey <fharvey -at- CGN -dot- NET> Date:Thu, 18 Dec 1997 12:39:20 -0600
As a fairly new tech writer, I find this to be one of the more
enlightening discussion lists available. I was reading this list
before I took the job I am at just to figure out if I wanted to become a
tech writer. You all have inspired me to take that plunge.
That said, I have a question for all of you:
Do you know of, have you taken or can you recommend a Master's program
in Technical Communication or
Graphic Arts that I might take over the Internet or as a correspondence
course? I know the information that I learn as part of on the job
training is more important for my work, but I would like to expand a
little and understand a little more of the theory behind tech writing.
I have a very weird and hectic schedule right now that will not allow me
to take a "regularly scheduled" class.
I would appreciate it if you could send your responses to me privately
and then I can summarize for the group.
Thanks alot for all your help so far...and happy writing all...
