Undergraduate Program

jessica travis danaBoise State offers two options for undergraduate-level study in technical communication:

  • B.A. in Technical Communication
  • Certificate in Technical Communication

B.A. Technical Communication

The B.A. Technical Communication program is a 40-credit program consisting of required courses plus electives. The required courses cover writing, editing, print- and online-document production, argument, and economics. Students select electives from communication, general business, management, marketing, and sociology.

Certificate in Technical Communication

The Certificate in Technical Communication at Boise State is intended primarily for those students who do not wish to become professional technical communicators, but who wish to improve their writing and editing skills. Some of these students are English majors, studying literature, creative or expository writing, or English education; however, many are from outside the Department of English and even outside the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Certificate consists of three required courses and two courses chosen from a list of electives.
