Program description: 

If you like communicating with others in ways that help them learn and achieve their goals, whether through speaking, writing, or graphic design; if you've always liked math or science and have an affinity for user-centered interface analysis and design, then you'd probably make a great technical communicator. Technical communicators make scientific, technical, and practical knowledge available to a variety of audiences in various media such as print, video, web, and digital multimedia. They also often manage communication processes within organizations (including managing teams of other technical communicators), as well as create documents which represent those organizations to the wider public.
