I replied personally to Bret, but I will post to the list for anyone else
who may be interested.

Michigan Technological University, in Houghton, Michigan, has a Masters
program in Rhetoric and Technical Communication. I believe they may even
have a doctorate program, but don't quote me on that.
It's a gorgeous place to live, if you don't mind being in the middle of
nowhere (literally). You've got to like winter up there, also - you're on
the shores of Lake Superior. Lots of outdoor activities available, such as
snowmobiling, skiing, and snowshoeing. Also, miles of pristine rocky
beaches, and several waterfalls within an hour of campus.
The main university number is 906-487-1885.
