ASU offers a BS and a BAS in Technical Communication. The BS is offered both through ASUOnline and face-to-face on the Polytechnic campus. We also offer an undergraduate certificate in Technical Communication that is available to all admitted regular undergraduate or non-degree seeking students at ASU.
Bachelor of Science
In the Technical Communication BS program, students learn how to write, design, produce, and manage information for a variety of audiences, using a range of traditional and emerging technologies. Courses focus on principles and hands-on application, and are designed to help students build their problem-solving, writing, editing, and design abilities. The BS in technical communication is the only undergraduate technical communication degree program available in the state of Arizona.
Bachelor of Science (User Experience)
The user experience (UX) concentration is designed to provide technical communication majors with an interdisciplinary foundation in communication, research and design that is central to the rapidly growing area of UX. The concentration provides students with a conceptual understanding and applied skills in methods of gathering user information, analyzing data and communicating research findings to stakeholders.
Bachelor of Applied Science
The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in technical communication is a flexible degree plan designed specifically for students who have earned an AAS from a regionally accredited institution. This major combines the technical experience gained in the student's associate degree program with a broader education of skills in management, leadership, critical thinking and communication.
The 18-credit undergraduate certificate in Technical Communication is available to all admitted regular or non-degree undergraduate students at ASU.
