Congratulations to our latest MA Grads!

We have three MA degrees in our English department–Literary Studies (LIT), Rhetoric and Communication Design (RCD), and Experimental Digital Media (XDM)–and last week we graduated students in ALL of them! So who did what? Who wrote about diseases in Hamlet? Who partnered with Systems Engineering? Who wrote about a travel guide for African American roadtrippers during the age of segregation? What else did they do?! Read on to find out more, and please join me in congratulating our newest MA alumni.–WIP
