Word, Sound and Image: Writing for Creative Media develops students’ ability to communicate effectively in English across multiple types of media. In this course, students will hone their language skills by composing written responses to print and digital media and translating between visual, written, and aural languages. Students will consider the ways in which writing—as an object and as a practice—is shaped by multimodal interactions, social context, and physical environment. They will also explore how language can be used to craft social and professional identities. Word, Sound and Image provides students with effective strategies for implementing writing as a key element in creative media projects, exhibitions, installations, and works that integrate photography, video, and sound. Students will have an opportunity to participate in a final group project that combines writing with multiple types of media.
