Boise State offers two options for graduate-level study in technical communication:
- M.A. in Technical Communication

M.A. Technical Communication
Students in our M.A. in Technical Communication (MATC) program learn both the theory and practice of technical communication, drawing on such disciplines as professional writing, rhetoric and composition, STEM communication, linguistics, cognitive psychology, human-computer interaction, sociology, and cultural and gender studies. They also get hands-on experience in writing, editing, print and digital design, web development, and usability studies, as well as a foundational understanding of both ethics and oral communication.
The MATC curriculum consists of five required courses, five electives, and a culminating portfolio. Click here to see the required courses and elective choices for earning an M.A. in Technical Communication.
