San Francisco State University (SFSU) offers a BA in Technical and Career
Writing (not just an English degree, it's a separate dept. from English,
geared toward tech. comm.) The basic degree program is 45 units (in
addition to the gen. ed. requirements for an undergraduate degree).
I'll be starting at SFSU in the fall as a Junior. (I've completed all my
undergraduate general ed. at other institutions.)
