Introduction

The PWE track of the English M.A. offers students the opportunity to learn the principles and practices—the techne—of writing for organizations, institutions, governments, and businesses.

Students in the program take courses in document design, technical editing, publication management, and language studies. All of these courses draw on both traditional and modern theories of rhetoric, and all offer a hands-on experience—using cutting-edge software tools—in the creation and crafting of professional documents.

Students are encouraged to explore a variety of approaches to the study of professional writing and editing. For some, the degree will be useful in gaining employment upon graduation; the degree also will make excellent preparation for the increasing number of Ph.D. programs in professional and technical communication.
