Although the M.A. in WRD is a new program, WRD faculty have been teaching graduate concentrations in Writing Pedagogy & Theory and Technical & Professional Writing for years.
We are proud of the accomplishments of our alumni of these programs. They have worked as grant writers for educational organizations and nonprofit organizations, and as professional and technical writers in corporate settings. Our students have found teaching positions at community colleges, four-year universities, community organizations, and overseas in countries like Lebanon, China, Venezuela, and Spain. Several of our graduates have also pursued further graduate study, receiving full funding at prestigious rhetoric and composition programs such as Ohio State University, University of Michigan, Arizona State University, University of Washington, and Purdue University.
If you are a graduate of the MAWRD program or the MAW program with a concentration in Teaching Writing or Professional Writing, please contact WRD via email to tell us what you are doing! You can also join our Facebook group (M.A. in WRD at DePaul University) to network with other students, graduates, and faculty.
