The first decision you have to make is about what degree you want to earn. Many people choose to just get their degrees in technical writing, also known as professional writing. These degree programs teach the basics of the industry, a bit of history on technical writing, various tools and techniques used in the work, formatting for different types of technical writing documents, proper grammar and spelling, punctuation, and other related skills and information. Some people, though, prefer to receive their educations in the content area, such as medical studies or pharmacology, in which they plan to use their technical writing skills. There are no right or wrong answers when it comes to choosing a specialization area. You simply have to do what is the most appealing choice for you and what best fits in with your own specific career goals.

When you have chosen a concentration area, then you need to decide upon a degree level. For some, an associate’s degree, which is typically earned in around four years on average, usually from a community college or from a trade or technical school is the best choice. Such institutions usually tend to be affordable and offer evening and weekend classes for those struggling to balance their educations with a career or a family. Others choose bachelor’s degree programs, which take around four years to complete. There are also master’s degree programs, typically completed in anywhere from one to three years, and which require a prior bachelor’s degree; and doctoral degree programs, which can take as long as seven years to complete and require a prior master’s degree. Just remember that any choice that results in you getting or furthering your education is most certainly a good one to make.

Your final step is just to choose what kind of institution you wish to attend. Community colleges, as mentioned above, are a good fit for many. In a similar vein, online schools are becoming increasingly popular. The trick with online schools, though, is to make sure you find one that is fully accredited, so that you don’t end up wasting your time, money, and energy on a useless and very expensive piece of paper that isn’t legally a diploma. There are also, of course, traditional colleges and universities as an option as well. Just pick whatever is the most realistic, beneficial, and convenient option for you and your lifestyle.
