This semester, spring 2023, the English department looks forward to a bright future by creating two new opportunities for students at Wagner College. Details about these new programs can be found on the “Programs” webpage for the English department.
The Communications Minor prepares the students for careers in the media and public relations. As an interdisciplinary program, it combines writing skills with the technical knowledge of media production and internet savvy. Students will develop their written and oral communication skills, study the nature of media (including journalism, film, and digital platforms), and learn some techniques of production.
The Digital Studies and Experimental Humanities Minor offers an interdisciplinary approach to the question of how digital technologies mediate our understanding of ourselves. Experimental Humanities emphasizes reflective, critical engagement as students explore the intersections between digital methodologies and humanities scholarship. A wide range of courses introduce students to different digital techniques for research, analysis, public engagement, and publication. Each student gains experience with hands-on, creative digital work, and students will have opportunities to conceive and build digital projects independently and with teams of other students.
