Thursday night was my first class of the new semester. The class is technical editing. Many people in the program warned me to not take any other classes while I’m in this one. Supposedly it is challenging and time consuming.
There are only seven students in the class. I am the only man. Yep, six other women. I’m not sure why the technical communications program has so many more women than men. Yes, there is a writing component but this program is also heavy in technological courses like html and xml coding, mulitmedia authoring – things that women generally aren’t known to flock to.
Then there is the problem that men are outnumbered by women in college these days. It sure is evident in my program. Where did all the men go?
