Rhetoric and Media Studies

Student Research

Students engage in many different forms of original research and creative work in the department.  Many courses require a research paper or creative project and our students have gone on to present some of this work at regional and national conferences, festivals, and workshops.  Faculty involve students in their own research and creative work and several of these collaborations have resulted in publications or films.

All majors and minors complete a capstone project, typically in their senior year.  Students produce their capstone project as part of a 400-level course, in which they learn the relevant theory, research, and method they need to conduct original work. Each semester, capstone students present their work to the department.  The gallery of title slides below provides a feel for the diversity of projects students have completed in recent years.
