About this English – Technical Communication Degree

The English Department at the University of Tennessee Knoxville offers a rich array of courses. Students learn the broad contours of the field and have the opportunity to concentrate in their areas of special interest, including Creative Writing; Literature, Criticism and Textual Studies; Rhetoric and Writing; and Technical Communication. Our faculty is committed to education inside and outside the classroom. Faculty members regularly win college or university-wide teaching and advising awards. They also have vibrant scholarly agendas and distinguished records of research, and they bring the latest intellectual, creative, and professional developments to their classrooms.

Enrollment in most courses is limited to thirty students (some have enrollments as low as fifteen or twenty). UT’s English – Technical Communication classes are marked by the exchange of ideas and by an intimate process of learning.
