Literature and Media Concentration
The Traditional and the Cutting Edge
The Literature and Media concentration extends students writing, analytical and research skills to understand and interpret various media, including film, television and new technology. This is EWL’s home for budding film-makers, video documentarians, long-form journalists, fan fiction writers, and social media practitioners who bring literary sensibilities to their work.
Students who concentrate in Literature and Media take a blend of both literature and communication courses, building connections between content, genres, and methods. Within individual courses such as The Visual Memoir, Narrating Climate Change, Special Topics: Video Game Storytelling, and Shakespeare and Film, these connections become even more concrete and expressive.
