Each course in this program provided invaluable experience, helping to establish a
solid foundation in the mechanics and theory of technical communications that has
real-world value. Furthermore, it has opened the doors to opportunities I would not
have had otherwise, advancing my career and getting me to where I am today.
Senior Director of Development Communications
Information Security Manager
Without a doubt, technical writing is my superpower which distinguishes me from my
peers in IT. In fact, I’m often sought by colleagues and friends for help with technical
writing and visual design because of the expertise I gained from both my bachelor’s
and master’s degrees in technical communication from UHD.
The MSTC program led me to positions and professions that opened the doors to my
career and interest in higher education. It provided the writing and research skills
I used to attain a second master's, and now as I work toward a doctorate. I had great
and knowledgeable professors, and I keep in contact with a number of them. They have
been helpful in my career and in my pursuit of other dreams.

I loved every minute of my time in the MSTC program. I feel that my degree helped
me transition into the oil and gas industry and increase my salary.
