As the use of technology in the workplace evolves at breakneck speed, so does the need for employees who can harness it to communicate professionally and effectively. This minor will give you technical skills in digital design, and help you understand how to use social media, blogs, and websites for business. You’ll also get the professional writing and speaking skills to succeed in the modern workforce.
Our program focuses on ethics as a foundation for technical writing, enabling you to provide employers with crucial, and ethically sound technical documentation. The minor will be particularly valuable to students pursuing careers in technical or medical professions.
Students undertaking the Technical and Professional Communication minor will be prepared to:
Utilize professional communication skills to produce materials, solve problems, and formulate solutions for expert and non-expert audiences.
Create written/oral/visual communication in a workplace environment individually and collaboratively.
Formulate social media structures to create positive return on investment for businesses and expand their reach.
Design and compose visual elements and integrate them into technical and professional texts.
Whether you’re working on a poem, a research paper, or an opinion piece, professors of English are available to help you brainstorm, review a draft, develop your ideas, or just double-check your grammar.
We believe it's important to offer access to opportunity to all qualified students. NYIT has one of the lowest private tuitions in New York State and provides more than $40 million in institutional financial aid each year.
