Creative Writing

Digital Literature and Comparative Media

We encounter digital texts and codes every time we use a smart phone, launch an app, or interact online. This immersion explores innovative and evolving questions and practices of text and code in literature, creative writing, and interactive media. It invites students to explore the social, cultural, and technological significance of text, code, and their interrelations. With additional courses, students complete the minor in Digital Literatures and Comparative Media.  Read More…


The English immersion gives students the opportunity to explore English Studies in the areas of literature, linguistics, and creative writing. The minor is flexible in order to accommodate student interest in areas such as specific literary historical periods or geographic areas, multimedia and the visual arts, or genre fiction such as science fiction, fantasy, or romance. Courses in the immersion emphasize the ability to read literature and new media analytically and write critically. Read More…

Human Language Technology & Computational Linguistics

Students can complete the immersion irrespective of their skills in languages other than English. Besides a core course on linguistic principles, students can choose electives covering technology of language, philosophy of language, and language in culture and society. Electives allow students to customize the immersion to their interests and needs, with the support of a faculty advisor. Read More…
