The intersection of literature and media understands the power of the written word across various platforms, communicating the diversity of genres, histories, and cultures.
Why Study Literature and Media at MMC?
The Literature and Media concentration extends students writing, analytical, and research skills to understand and interpret various media, including film, television, and new technology. This is EWL’s home for budding filmmakers, video documentarians, long-form journalists, fan fiction writers, and social media practitioners who bring literary sensibilities to their work.
What You Will Learn
Students in the Literature and Media concentration take a blend of both literature and communication courses, building connections between content, genres, and methods. Within individual courses such as The Visual Memoir, Narrating Climate Change, Special Topics: Video Game Storytelling, and Shakespeare and Film, these connections become even more concrete and expressive.
The Carson Review
The mark of a thriving undergraduate creative writing program is in the eminence of its student literary magazine: The Carson Review is Marymount Manhattan College’s creative writing journal, published once a year in the spring.
