Are you interested in training in technical communication? A bachelor’s degree? A master’s degree? A PhD?
Although all of these options exist for continuing your learning about technical communication, each type of education addresses a different need.
So which educational option best meets your needs? That depends—based on your goals, personal situation, finances, and how independently you want to study.
The interactive article How Should You Continue Your Learning Journey in Technical Communication? A Self-Assessment in the July/August 2012 issue of Intercom helps you to assess your needs and suggests the type of program that might meet them. In it, you answer a series of questions, calculate a score, and, in the score, learn which option might best meet your needs. Following that, this article describes the learning options available, for whom each is intended, and how they differ from one another.
