North Dakota Technical Writing Education

If you plan to pursue an education, at whatever level, in technical writing or a related area in the state of North Dakota, then you should know that you are already on the path to success in the field. Education is, in fact, the single most determining factor as to whether or not you will be hired to work as a technical writer. In general, the higher your degree level and the more oriented it is to the exact job you want to do, the greater your chances are of landing your dream job and enjoying a long and lucrative career as a technical writer.

Your first step, of course, is to decide what level degree you want to go for. For those just starting out, a simple associate’s degree, which can often be earned in as little as two years, is an excellent option. These degrees can usually be earned from community colleges or technical schools, which tend to be more affordable than traditional colleges and universities and to operate on a less traditional schedule, bringing added convenience to the lives of busy working adults or those juggling the demands of family responsibilities. For some, bachelor’s degrees, usually earned online or from traditional higher learning institutions, are good options. They can usually be earned in about four years, or only two with a prior associate’s degree. Higher level degrees include master’s degrees, which take about one to three years, on average, to complete, and require you to have a prior bachelor’s degree, and doctoral degrees or PhDs, which may take as long as seven years to complete and require a prior master’s degree.

In addition to carefully considering what level degree you wish to pursue, you also have to think about whether you want to earn your degree in actual technical and/or professional writing, as it may be called by your institution, or in a content area subject, such as engineering, chemistry, biology, mathematics, medical studies, pharmacology, computers, or English. This decision will determine what schools you have to choose from, and there are lots of really good ones in the state.

Those who are considering a technical writing degree will have far fewer options than those interested in a content area degree. Some of the choices, though, for technical and/or professional writing degrees include Saint Leo University, which is actually an online school, and Dickinson State University, which is named for the city of Dickinson where it is located.

As mentioned above, those who have an interest in content area education have far more choices in terms of where they will go to school. Just a few of the many possible choices for prospective technical writers include Jamestown College, a prestigious private institution located in Jamestown; Rasmussen College, with locations in both Fargo and Bismarck; the University of Mary, also located in Bismarck; Bismarck State College, in the same city; Dickinson State University, located in Dickinson; Lake Region State College in Devils Lake; Mayville State University of Mayville; Minot State University at Minot; Dakota College, located in Bottineau; North Dakota State University in Fargo; the North Dakota State College of Science of Wahpeton; the University of North Dakota at Grand Forks; Valley City State University, located in Valley City; and Williston State College, aptly named for its location in Williston.

Keep in mind too that outside of these institutions there are online colleges and universities all over the world to consider as well. Though these virtual institutions sometimes get a bad reputation, they are fine choices as long as you select an accredited school.
