Master of Arts in English, Rhetoric, Writing, and Digital Media Studies

Welcome to the Master's program in Rhetoric, Writing, and Digital Media Studies. We have developed a curriculum that will prepare you to participate and advance current knowledge and practices in the field, and to use your understanding of research methodologies and writing skills in your academic writing, workplace writing, and information development. You will also be able to analyze how cultural artifacts (these could include written, digital, visual, and spoken texts) shape identities and ideologies in diverse local, national, historical, and global communities.

Please see the academic catalog for the most recent information regarding courses and academic plans.
