Student organizations and publications

English and technical communication students are encouraged to join a student organization such as Sigma Tau Delta, an honor society for English majors and minors and those interested in English language and literature, or the student chapter of the Society for Technical Communication, which is the only chapter of its kind in the Eastern half of Missouri.

Sigma Tau Delta

S&T's Alpha Gamma Mu chapter of Sigma Tau Delta sponsors several on-campus events each semester.  Members are invited to share their scholarly or creative work annually at a national conference.

Society for Technical Communication

The student chapter of the Society for Technical Communication primarily serves the needs of undergraduate and graduate students in technical communication, but welcomes professional technical communicators and other non-students as members.
