Master of Arts in Professional and Technical Writing


Graduate students in Professional and Technical Writing are encouraged to supplement their coursework with writing experience in workplace settings.

Many workplace internship opportunities are available each semester. If you are accepted for an internship, you can earn three hours of credit toward your master’s degree by registering for RHET 7360. Some internships also pay students an hourly wage or a stipend upon completion of the semester.

For more information on PTW internships, contact Dr. David Fisher:
Office: SUB 118
Phone: 569-8340

Be prepared with your resume, two writing samples, and two references who know you work as a writer (such as a professor or employer).
