English Major


Storytelling is the universal gateway to meaningful connections. Whether it is through social media, community activism, education, filmmaking, producing video games, or entrepreneurship, a good storyteller can shape the way we think, feel and behave. At Bowie State, our experienced faculty give students the tools to dissect and understand diverse narratives and to create stories of their own.
