You can get an MS in technical writing. That's what Rensellaer
Polytechnical (spelling approximate) offers. I was tempted to take their
program if only to get the MS. I find the idea amusing that someone with
a BA English can get an Masters of Science with not one university math
or physical/biological science course to his name. That doesn't mean
it's not a good program, but I find their categorizing it as a science
to be a bit peculiar.
