We're committed to making your graduate experience rewarding on all levels: professionally, academically, and socially. Students in our online graduate programs value the relationships they've formed with other students, and our program would like to provide as many opportunities as possible for students, faculty, and alumni to network, share their expertise, learn from one another, partner on projects, and simply enjoy each other's company. If you're in our Certificate or MA program, you're part of a community!
TPC has a Facebook group, a LinkedIn group, and a Twitter feed, and we hope you'll join one or more of these groups. If you're in the central North Carolina area, consider joining the Triangle chapter of the Society for Technical Communication; several current students, faculty, and alums are active in that chapter.
We also encourage distance education students to visit campus if they're in the area, and to attend campus talks, symposia, and other events sponsored by the department or the university. Whenever possible, we'll set up live streams of campus talks and events for distance education students to attend virtually. But, if you can make it to campus, we'd love to have you. Contact one of more of your professors to say you'll be visiting and we'll arrange a time to meet.
A graduate program is as much about community as it is about coursework, and we look forward to your participation. Join us!
