Using print and digital technologies to create, design, and produce texts now requires new ways of thinking about writing as a concept and practice.  As an interdisciplinary examination and application of rhetoric and writing technologies, the Minor in Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies prepares students to read, analyze, and compose.  These skills serve across academic, workplace, and public spheres. The interactive courses are designed to improve reading, critical thinking, argumentation, narrative, and problem-solving abilities.  Students learn to evaluate the implications of print, digital, and social media compositions in both local and global contexts.  As a result, students are able to navigate known, new, and emerging writing situations and media.  Students learn how to be flexible composers who can apply rhetorical strategies and digital skills to their current environments, as well as adapt emerging technologies to new contexts.
