Writing Studies?

Writing Studies combines experience with writing from a liberal arts, as well as a new media, perspective. Students apply principles of rhetoric, design, cultural theory, and creative thinking to writing projects.  Writing Studies students create and deliver stories, make persuasive arguments, and develop a variety of writing and visual communication techniques.

“My degree is amazing and I love it! It's definitely a conversation starter in interviews because it's not a common degree. People are always interested to know what that entails and what courses were a part of that.” --Eliza Steely, Writing Studies Major, 2013
