NJIT offers an exciting completely online master's program in Professional and Technical Communication that combines the latest research and applications in technical communication with emerging applications in digital media. Students receive hands on experience with the latest developments in visual design, hypertext design, information architecture and the technologies that support this new means of corporate communication.
The MS in Professional and Technical Writing is located within the College of Science and Liberal Arts and supported by the Division of Continuing Professional Education. NJIT is a nationally ranked research university. For three consecutive years, US News & World Report's 2009 Annual Guide to America's Best Colleges named NJIT a top-tier research university. Many online classes are taught by professors who are also leading-edge researchers in their fields. One distinguished professor at NJIT was even named best online instructor in the country - a coveted award - by the Alfred F. Sloan Foundation. Having research professors teach your class assures that you'll learn the most advanced subject matter in whatever field you chose to study.
NJIT's online programs are also student centered. Optimally, online classes turn into virtual-learning communities, in which students interact and learn from each other, and their professors, more than they could in face-to-face classes. Perhaps that's why some online NJIT students have such high praise for its programs.
Know, also, that NJIT has affordable tuition. This year, the Princeton Review named NJIT one of the nation's Best Value Colleges. And this fall, NJIT introduced an online tuition rate that will help online students who live outside New Jersey save on tuition.
