Interpret, analyze, and respond to narratives in many forms, including literature, film, and other media. Learn how narrative techniques are used in multiple disciplines. Develop writing, research, presentation, and critical thinking skills to foster effective communication in a variety of academic and professional fields.
Literature & Diversity (ENGL 113C - TR 12:15-1:30pm), Dr. Tom Kinnahan, English
We will examine ways that authors and filmmakers from a variety of ethnic backgrounds have employed narrative as a form of cultural and artistic expression. The course will survey modes of storytelling as expressed in a variety of media and across multiple cultural traditions.
Media Literacy (JMA 140C - TR 1:40-2:55pm), Robert Healy, Journalism & Multimedia Arts
Media Literacy explores media industries, practices and issues. Regardless of their major or area of study, all college students should understand the grammars and methods that underpin media messages; they should know the identities and motives of those who create media messages and platforms; they should understand the relationship between media and politics, and how media framing subtly shapes political decision-making; they should have a thorough understanding of the personal and public implications of social media. .
Thinking & Writing Across the Curriculum (UCOR 101C - MWF 10:00-10:50am), Dr. Matt Ussia, English
UCOR 101 is designed to help prepare students for their collegiate and professional careers. To help advance this part of our agenda you will be expected to read and write, a lot, and often. With these twin goals of creating knowledge and preparation for a lifetime of writing in mind, our course will also give special consideration to topics dealing with narration, diversity, journeys, representations of the self, and experiences.
