Built upon an analysis of large-scale polls of employers, this program focuses on the five skills considered most important for success in the job market: critical thinking, creative thinking, written communication, oral communication, and the ability to collaborate as part of a team.
With courses in areas from new media journalism to graphic novels, from legal writing to crime fiction, this regionally distinctive program offers a digital-age curriculum that is innovative, entrepreneurial, and cross-disciplinary. You’ll develop career-driven, transferable skills in one of these specialized bachelor's degree options:
In any degree option, you’ll have the opportunity to be part of one of two on-campus publications: The Manchester Independent, a digital newspaper covering the Greater Manchester area, and Best American Experimental Writing, an annual, nationally distributed anthology of innovative literary art.
The Literary Arts & Studies program culminates with real-world experience through upper-level seminars, capstones, and internships that are tailored to your own career ambitions—and focused on the applied skills that employers particularly value.
