The Bachelor of Arts in Writing and New Media degree program emphasizes the role and place of text and image within a world increasingly dependent upon writing and new media proficiency. Project driven courses challenge students to implement real-world applications in nearly every class. Specialized course-work and individual attention allows graduated to begin work immediately, satisfying the demand for professionals who can communicate using both text and image.

As part of the Bachelor of Arts in Writing and New Media, students take a number of courses across three content areas: textual production, visual production, and media can cultural studies. The textual production area focuses on written communication through course offerings such as new media writing, news writing for new media, and creative writing.

The visual production area offers students a chance to engage with visual media in courses such as film and video production, applied graphics and digital photography.

The media and cultural studies area combines hands-on production with a study of media in courses such as social media integration, publishing for new media, and media, culture and society. In addition, students study classical rhetoric, develop high-level computer skills and produce a portfolio that demonstrates their writing and new media proficiency to potential employers in fields such as new media publishing, freelance witting, content creation, mass communication and marketing.
