Concentrations are replacing what were formerly called emphases. Students who have already begun work on an emphasis will be able to complete that emphasis up to the 2015-16 academic year.
With that said, students should know that the areas of study formerly covered in the emphases continue to be available in our new concentration areas.
Students interested in the Creative Writing emphasis or Rhetoric emphasis should know that these areas of study are now available as concentrations in Creative Writing and Rhetoric and Writing.
Students interested in the Publishing emphasis should know that this area of study has been rolled into the Professional and Media Writing concentration.
Students interested in the African-American Literature emphasis should know that this area of study has become a cluster in the Literary and Cultural Studies concentration.
