Information Developer

Andrea Courtright, M.A. Technical Communication, 2019

I used the MATC program to develop skills I use every day at my current job writing support content for a large technology company. The program also gave me the opportunity to explore a wide range of tech comm genres, which I hope to use to fulfill my goal of becoming a freelance technical writer.

Technical Communicator, Los Angeles, CA

Denise Ramirez, M.A. Technical Communication, 2018

The skills I learned in the MATC program are the reason I was hired immediately after graduating. I currently do content creation for digital marketing and online communities, help with product print packaging, edit internal and external documentation, and edit websites by optimizing user experience principles.

Public Information Officer

Michael McMillan, Graduate Certificate in Technical Communication, 2018

Boise State University’s Graduate Certificate in Technical Communication helped me improve my technical writing, editing, and document design skills. As an information officer and fireline photographer, I work to keep government agency messaging and rhetoric in balance, communicating in writing and with my photos, and face-to-face with community residents and the media on scene of emerging events.

Technical Communicator, Northwest Lineman College

Sara Ann Miller, M.A. in Technical Communication, 2018

The MATC program gave me access to professors, peers, and curated content that inspired me. In turn, my excitement about technical communication grew, and I became more excited about what I could do in the field. Now, I write curriculum to help linemen-in-training succeed, thrive, and most importantly, stay safe.
