Field of Study:Communication, Journalism, and Related Programs, Other
Description:The Technical Communication (Co–op) program is an intensive learning/work experience designed to prepare you for a career as a technical communicator (writer, editor, documentation specialist) in a variety of fields. The first semester of the program prepares you for the co–operative work placement which takes place in the Winter semester. An integral component of the program, the work placement experience provides you with the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills gained in the first academic term. In turn, you'll acquire on–the–job knowledge and skills which will be applied to projects during the second academic term. The second academic term takes place in the summer semester and focuses on project development and the acquisition of advanced design and document management skills as well as specialized work in various electronic media. Upon graduation, you’ll will be able to design, research, draft, edit and produce technical documents for a wide range of audiences and purposes.

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
