The minor prepares students for a career in technical writing by combining intensive training in writing with practical experience and fundamental technical skills. The 22 semester hour cognate studies curriculum brings together all three. All students must take EH 301, EH 302, EH 401, and EH 320 plus nine hours of relevant electives. Students with non-technical majors (e.g., English, Communication Arts) should plan early to take courses in technical or scientific fields. Students with technical majors (e.g., engineering, physics, computer science) will take additional courses focusing on writing and communication skills.

A typical program for a non-technical major is as follows:
