Greetings Techwrl-rs and STC-listers:

A few weeks back, I posted a request for information on distance learning
programs in Tech. Comm. It has taken me awhile to gather information;
however, I noticed a similar request posted to both lists, so I finally got
my act together... Thanks to everyone who replied to my post, hope this
helps others as well. I will cross-post this message to both the Techwr-l
and the Tech. Comm. Students lists:

Schools:

Utah State University offers the most extensive online Masters Program of
all that I found. According to the woman who forwarded the info, they get
good professors. The only draw back I found was that it was quite expensive
(from a Canuck's perspective) and you may be required to make periodic
trips to campus. Find it at: http://english.usu.edu/

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (out of Troy, NY)
Also offers online Masters; however, they are not Tech. Comm. per se, but
related - human/computer interaction, design and the like. (I am still
waiting info...)
Find it at http://www.rsvp.rpi.edu/rsvp

Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia also has an online program.

Texas Tech University is also offering graduate classes for
technical communication online. You might find something useful here:

Helpful Resources:

For general information and listing of all the schools who offer tech comm
programs, see http://www.stc-va.org/Academics/school.html

Keith Soltys's web site may be useful,
"Internet Resources for Technical Communicators" at:
http://www.interlog.com/~ksoltys/techcomm.html
Keith is a member of the Toronto STC chapter, and he does include some
info here about online courses.

Canadian:
Canadian Institute of New Media is offering a Masters with the University
of B.C., but it is on site as far as I know (Iam waiting for info). They
are at http://www.mediavision.cotr.bc.ca/institut.htm

After all that, I think I will be following a course at a local, Montreal
university, Concordia. They have a Masters/Diploma program in Educational
Design and Information Technology. It comes highly recommended by friends
who have followed the course, but I still await news from other sources
regarding online programs.

Cheers!
