We are excited to offer a new Disciplinary Minor in Rhetoric, Writing, and Media Studies to all students beginning in Fall 2022. The current Interdisciplinary Minor will be phased out and is only available to students graduating prior to 2025. Those currently enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Minor may choose to complete the Disciplinary Minor.

This minor is designed for students interested in rhetoric, writing, and the interrelated arts of media. Core courses provide students with extensive opportunities to develop their writing in various genres and examine rhetorical theories and practices. Elective courses explore social, cultural and field-specific topics in language, logic, persuasion and multimedia modes of communication.

Students interested in pursuing an internship in rhetoric & writing, please review the following video:
