Department Highlights 2014-2015
- The Journalism Program has had great success placing students in internships and jobs in their field. UMD journalism students are currently working as interns for the Duluth News Tribune, local television stations, and one student was awarded a highly competitive national internship with Bloomberg News Service. Journalism graduates are employed at KSTP-TV, the Duluth News Tribune, American Girl Magazine, The Panama City News Herald, ECM Publishers, the Minnesota Timberwolves, The Gear Junkie and KGTV San Diego to name just a few.
- Associate Professors David Beard (Writing Studies) and Mitra Emad (Sociology/Anthropology) addressed more than 80 students, faculty and community members in the Library Rotunda about the role of comic books in expressing national identity within the United States and across national borders (in addressing the Israeli-Palestinian question). The event was sponsored by the Kathryn Martin Library and the Alworth Institute.
- UMD will host the Lake Superior Summit on the Teaching of Writing and English as a Second Language on March 6, 2015. The event, which draws teachers from throughout the Arrowhead region of Minnesota and western Wisconsin, engages lively discussion and the presentation of new research on the Teaching of Writing and English as a Second Language. This event is sponsored by the Writing Studies Department, UMD College in the Schools, UW-Superior Department of Writing and Library Science, ESLi Institute at UW-Superior and the College of St. Scholastica.
- During the Fall 2014 semester, students in Dr. Kenneth Marunowski's Grant and Proposal Writing course worked with local businesses The Duluth Coffee Company and The Duluth Experience to help them identify ways that they could improve the workflow of their companies, thereby increasing profit margins while simultaneously supporting the local economy.
