The writing studies minor provides instruction in effective composition for both academic and professional settings. To this end, students will create written texts and may craft multimedia productions that incorporate image, sound, and hypertext. Students in the program take courses in three major areas: professional writing, composition and rhetoric, and new media literacy.
