The online MSc in Information Design & Communication degree program at Southern Polytechnic
State University consists of 36 credit hours (12 courses).
Based on your application materials, the Graduate Review Committee may require you to take 2 Transition Courses (6 non-credit hours) before you begin the degree program. In addition, if you are accepted as a provisional student, you will have to take the transition courses.
These courses prepare you for your graduate program, but do not count for credit toward your graduate program. After you make a grade of "B" or better in both courses the Graduate Review Committee will reconsider your degree program application.
You'll start the degree by taking 3 Foundation Courses (9 credit hours); these courses prepare you for the remainder of the work in the program.
Once you complete each of these foundation courses with a grade of "B" or better, you'll also take 2 Required Courses (6 credit hours) at any time in your master's degree coursework.
A grade of "B" or better is required to pass courses at the graduate level. In an internship or thesis, an "S" indicates you've successfully completed the course.
SPSU’s Continuing Education Center offers short courses that provide hands-on, practical skill training in the fundamentals of technical communication, including technical writing, project management, Web design, and instructional design.
These non-credit courses cover the basics in only a few sessions and are a cost-effective
way to learn if technical communication is the right career for you!
