The author focuses on criticisms of technical communication education as training that is too narrowly technical. He endorses the implementation of a program of general education that introduces undergraduate students not only to essential knowledge, but also to connections across the disciplines (E.L. Boyer, 1987). This program would include limitations on expansion of the major as a percentage of total credit hours required, and for greater restraint in course development, as well as more focused attention to meeting academic goals and objectives prior to vocational and career ones.
