    ELC 155 — Media Literacy
    0.5 credit per semester

    Media Literacy teaches students how to build the critical thinking, writing, and reading skills required in a media-rich and increasingly techno-centric world. In a world saturated with media messages, digital environments, and social networking, concepts of literacy must expand to include all forms of media. Today's students need to be able to read, comprehend, analyze, and respond to non-traditional media with the same skill level they engage with traditional print sources.

    ELC 157 — Creative Writing
    0.5 credit per semester

Although most creative writing classes cover several expressive forms, others concentrate exclusively on one particular form.
