Media Culture Program
The American Studies Media Culture Program (ASMCP) teaches undergraduates to develop digital literacy through engagement with a variety of digital platforms. The ASMCP holds workshops and discussions with several campus partners to evaluate new media’s influence on our personal and professional lives.
Students receive several unique benefits for enrolling in the ASMCP, including
- 1.5 credits toward a degree for each semester of participation (3 credits for an academic year)
- indispensible networking and collaboration opportunities with peers, graduate students, faculty, and alumni
- experience helping to plan, organize, and execute a symposium that focuses on undergraduate digital humanities work around the university
- attending the Eastern American Studies (EAS) Conference in the Spring;
- and learning new media skills such as blogging, podcasting, and video essay editing that will empower students to create innovative scholarship, while developing professional skills necessary for a career in the 21st century.
