Immersions

ShqipSrpski

As part of their bachelor's degree requirements, students must complete an immersion—a concentration of three courses in a particular area. These upper-level courses are used to meet RIT's general education requirements. In many cases, an immersion can lead to a minor with the addition of two courses. However, not all minors have a corresponding immersion and vice versa. At RITK, there are four different immersions offered. 

Immersions 

ENGLISH Immersion (9 credits)

The English immersion gives students the opportunity to explore English studies in the areas of literature, linguistics, and creative writing. The immersion is flexible in order to accommodate student interest in areas such as specific literary historical periods or geographic areas, multimedia and the visual arts, or genre fiction such as science fiction, fantasy, or romance. Courses emphasize the ability to read literature and new media analytically and write critically.

ENGL-210 Literature, Culture, and Media 3 credits

Elective Courses (chose two additional courses)
