Literature, Culture, and Media
Literature, Culture, and Media studies the range of literature in English from its medieval origins to its global present while also training students in critical interpretation of texts, objects, film, and digital media. Students can focus in areas such as the African Diaspora, gender and sexuality, composition and studies in writing, postcolonial and global literatures, and critical theory.
Creative Writing offers students the opportunity to practice a literary art form (fiction, poetry, and/or creative nonfiction) with the guidance of published writers. Students work to develop technical skills specific to each genre and enter into aesthetic conversations with the literary community.
Language and Linguistics
Language and Linguistics provides a new perspective on something we normally take for granted: language. Courses in this area investigate the English language by considering its contemporary structure and historical development as well as the broader principles that shape English and all languages.
