PWTC concentration is offered to undergraduate and graduate majors within
of English and to other interested students.
The program provides practice in professional research and editing, grant writing, software and hardware documentation, report writing and business communications; it supplies hands-on training in a range of industry-standard software; and it offers an ongoing forum for the study and critique of theories and practices of information design.
The concentration consists of five courses, all of which are writing intensive. In mimicking workplace demands, students are required to meet deadlines and to work collaboratively on designated projects. No courses in the program are offered online.
