    A short list of some programs I've come across. I will amend this with details later.

    Master of Technical Communication https://www.usu.edu/online/degrees/masters/technical-communication

    Master of Arts in Writing - Technical & Professional Track
    https://outreach.missouristate.edu/Online/MA-Writing-TechProTrack.htm

    Master's in Technical Communication & Localization https://mastertcloc.unistra.fr/ *France*

    Graduate Certificate in Scientific & Technical Communication https://www.bgsu.edu/arts-and-sciences/english/scientific-technical-communication/online-graduate-certificate.html

    BA & MA in Technical & Professional Writing https://ualr.edu/online/programs/ba-ptw/ https://ualr.edu/online/programs/ptw/

    With Middle Georgia State University, you can earn a Graduate Certificate in Technical Writing & Digital Arts along the way of getting your Master of Arts in Technical & Professional Writing https://www.mga.edu/arts-letters/graduate-programs/index.php

    Most schools I've seen thus far only have online offerings at the Master's level, but Texas Tech offers an online BA, MA and Ph.D

    Shawnee State University Online
    https://online.shawnee.edu/online-degrees/
    MA and Grad Cert in Composition and Rhetoric

    University of Texas at El Paso UTEP Connect Extended University
    https://online.utep.edu/online-graduate-certificate-in-technical-and-professional-writing
    Grad Cert in Technical and Professional Writing is online, and stacks toward the MA in Rhetoric and Writing Studies, but that MA isn't listed as online. (An applicant interested in stacking might ask about working something out integrating two or more types from Grad Cert courses, courses from a different UTEP online program like their fully online MFA CW or MEd Literacy Education, reading or independent study courses, and transfer courses from elsewhere.)

    Upon further investigation, I found out that all credits in the online Graduate Certificate in Grants & Proposals fully apply to the MATC. So you can get both without taking any extra courses.
