The TCLoc program delivers its courses exclusively online and in English, offering a variety of practical content relevant to today’s technical communication and translation sectors. While providing the flexibility and accessibility of distance-learning for its courses, the TCLoc master’s program focuses on bridging the gap between academia and industry.
