What Types of Technical Writing Programs are in Idaho?

If you live in the state of Idaho and are interested in pursuing an education as a technical writer, you are probably curious about what kind of educational programs are available to you in the state. The answer to that question really depends on what is meant by “technical writing programs.” Almost any educational venture can, in a sense, be considered a technical writing program if you use it, right away or in the future, to start a career in technical writing. There is certainly no one way to enter into this vast and diverse field.

Some people, of course, do just earn their degrees, at whatever level, in technical and/or professional writing. Such programs focus on teaching you to be an excellent technical writer, and while they can be good, many potential employers may frown about your lack of content area study and knowledge. Often, then, such educations need to be supplemented, either with experience or more education. If you, though, for whatever reason, think this kind of degree is right for you, you have lots of wonderful choices in the state. Programs and schools offering degrees in technical and/or professional writing include Boise State University, located in Boise and offering a doctoral level degree, making it perfect for adding to a previously held education; Brigham Young University at Idaho, in Rexburg, with a bachelor’s degree program; The College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, which has a very popular and a very quick associate’s degree program; Idaho State University at Pocatello with a doctoral level degree program; Lewis Clark State College, located in Lewiston, and offering a bachelor’s degree program; North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, which has an associate’s degree program; Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, with a master’s degree program; the College of Idaho, at Caldwell, also with a master’s degree program; and the University of Idaho at Moscow with a PhD program.

Of course, as mentioned above, there is no rulebook that says you absolutely have to attend one of the above colleges or universities or even get your degree in technical and/or professional writing. In fact, many successful technical writers have no formal training on the actual writing aspect of their job; they just learned through experience. Many employers feel that a strong content knowledge is what is important, and that good writing skills can be learned through consistent work and practice.

This means that you really can attend virtually any program or school you choose in the state, as long as it is something you can and want to write about in a technical aspect. You can also think about attending an online school if you choose. The great thing about that is that you are not limited to schools that are located in your state, but can instead get your education from across the world if you so choose. Just make sure your online school is accredited, and, no matter where you go, do something you love.
