Program Overview

The overarching goal of the Technical and Professional Communication program is to prepare graduates to take complex information and make it consumable to internal and external audiences who may not have discipline-specific knowledge. Graduates will become more aware of the forms of communication and communication processes in order to successfully convey their messages.

The Technical and Professional Communication major will emphasize written, oral, and digital communication skills. The coursework will prepare students to collect, analyze and communicate complex information to various audiences. The Communication Department’s approach to this major asks students to complete courses including social media, interpersonal, group dynamics, visual rhetoric, technical writing and speaking, and critical thinking and information dissemination.

The program curriculum will draw upon three primary spheres: writing, visual, and digital storytelling; analytic and critical thinking skills; and oral and interpersonal skills. Additionally, students can select one of three specializations or tracks: Health Care; High-tech Literacy; and Corporate/Organizational. Some program-level learning outcomes include:

  • Develop and present cogent, coherent, and accurate writing for general and specialized audiences.
  • Communicate effectively to audiences by listening actively and responding constructively as Scripture instructs within various contexts.
  • Draw from various disciplines to describe orally and in writing how existing knowledge or practice is advanced, tested, and revised in each core field studied.
  • Distinguish and examine communication-related problems from a Christian perspective to better serve society.
  • Cultivate appropriate organizational skills related to professionalism, work ethic, and attitude.
  • Analyze complex data and be able to combine them into easily-understandable presentations utilizing excellent critical thinking skills.

    Scholarships

    When applying for admission to CUW, you will have to submit a proof of your ability to cover all expenses at least during the first year of your stay here. As an international student at CUW you will not be eligible for any type of financial assistance that is offered for the American students (scholarships, fellowships, grants). It is also extremely difficult to get a loan from any American bank. This means that it is your responsibility to find funds needed and you cannot count on any financial source in the U.S. You cannot expect to obtain this money by undertaking employment because according to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) regulations, you may not engage in any type of off-campus employment until the end of the first academic year. Any subsequent employment is strictly regulated and limited in time. In regard to this, before coming to the U.S. carefully consider if you have the necessary financial resources to cover your tuition and living expenses at least for the first year of your stay.

    There are limited institutional scholarship opportunities for international undergraduate students. Possible scholarships are based on academic performance. The student must apply each semester.

    Undergraduate students

    Financial aid in the form of institutional scholarships and grants is available to qualifying undergraduate students.

    Awards are solely based on GPA. Through the Luther Promise schlorship, a student who has managed to obtain a 3.79 GPA or above can recieve a maximum of $18,000.

    Graduate assistantships

    The only financial assistance available for international students is offered to graduate students in the form of graduate assistantship positions. Both international and American graduate students are eligible for the assistantship positions. Graduate students are offered a job in one of the departments that offer positions. Graduate assistants undertake to work 20 hours per week for one calendar year. At the end of each month the department you work with (sign a contract) pays $1,000. You can use this money either for covering your tuition, living or other expenses.

    In order to apply for a graduate assistantship position, by May 1st you would have to submit the following documents:

    • Fill in a graduate assistantship application form
