Technical Communication Minor

Enhance Your Education

Mercer’s Technical Communication minor makes a valuable addition to your Mercer undergraduate degree. Technical Communication minors are able to analyze audiences for any type of communication, define their purpose, and design appropriate communication products to meet needs. They are also able to:

  • Write clearly for various audiences
  • Present information accurately and persuasively
  • Use a variety of media appropriately
  • Work successfully in a team environment

In addition, our students often serve as the user advocate on design teams, focusing attention on design alternatives that respect the needs of the users and add value to technical products.
