AbstractWe are proposing a low residency Master's in Communications/Media track in Technical and Professional Writing. The program would involve biannual residencies of two-weeks at the college (in the summer and winter) as well as distance learning relationships with faculty as students in the program complete the work begun during their residencies over a five month period. (See Appendix A for a more complete explanation.) The program will make use of some existing courses already offered through the Communication/Media Management track but will allow students to concentrate on developing more sophisticated skills in their writing as well as adding to their practical knowledge base in the areas of law and ethics, philosophy, management and new technologies. The students in the program will develop research skills appropriate for Master's level work and will each be required to satisfactorily complete a thesis in order to complete their program.
