Bachelor of Arts in English, Writing, and Media

An English, Writing, and Media degree combines the liberal arts core curriculum with those of professional writing – including writing for digital media – resulting in a program that fosters critical thinking and written expression in a variety of practical modes.

Today’s writer no longer writes for one medium.  They must be adaptable to all forms including traditional, social, and digital – something that takes flexibility, creativity, and quick thinking (and writing too).  Many companies look for multimedia journalists as they must post their story on multiple platforms in words, images, and video.

Interdisciplinary in nature, the English, Writing, and Media program enables students to bring different disciplines together to address complex issues in a fast-paced and highly innovative world.
