(1) We are offering a new GenEd-approved course in Summer 1: MLSC250 Lol that's not funny: Language change and linguistic creativity in online communication. The class will focus on language use, diversity, change and creativity in online environments and may be of particular interest to COMM students and others interested in areas such as social media analysis, language and society, online interaction and the development of new communicative norms.
PULSAR students work closely with mentors and peers to gain experience and build skills which are valuable for their future careers. The program’s small size, individualized mentoring and research opportunities can enrich students' experiences in ways that may be particularly valuable in our current, more distanced learning environment. PULSAR has been able to meet in a hybrid format this year, and the program's flexibility has allowed us to build community among students both online and in-person.
Applications for Fall 2021 are due by Tuesday, April 27th. More information about the program is available at go.umd.edu/pulsar
If you have questions or would like to discuss whether the program is a good fit for you, you can sign up to talk with the program director, Dr. Tess Wood; attend a drop-in info session on April 14th 12-1pm; or email email@example.com
