Writing and New Media

The Writing and New Media focus area provides an opportunity to students interested in all aspects of writing, both professional and creative, and explores the ways in which the new media of publication and communication (the internet, the world wide web) provide new forms and genres of writing and communication. This stream will interest students wishing to explore the many ways in which digital multimedia communications change modes of communication, interaction, and publication and, with them, social, political and economic patterns of experience and behavior on a global scale.

Note: Writing and New Media is not open to students admitted prior to September 1, 2011.
