When I got my TW certification at the UW I spoke to one of the professors
about this.
She said that if you want to teach then yes, get your Masters.
However, it will not help you much in the workplace.

The certificate program is well respected and is *only* one year (man was it
a hard year!) of evening classes twice a week. It helped to get me my last
TW job and my present one, too.

I would appreciate some input on the importance (or unimportance) of
graduate-level instruction in the technical writing profession. Does it pay

off? Do graduate programs adequately preparing students to function as
effective technical communicators in the real world?
