Overview of Graduate Programs in Technology Leadership and Communication (TLC)
The MS Technology program is designed so that people holding a BS degree in a technology discipline or a related area can earn their degree either as a full-time student or as a part-time student working full-time. The program can typically be completed in three to five semesters, and must be completed within five years.
While earning the MS in Technology within the TLC Department, you can focus on your coursework on Leadership, Human Resource Development, and/or Technical Communication. In addition, you can earn a graduate certificate in Human Resource Development (HRD).
