The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program in Creative Writing and New Media that is offered by Navajo Technical University will provide the knowledge and skills needed to secure gainful employment in a digital environment, to publish and market creative works online, or simply to function as a full participant in this new digital age.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing and New Media develops skilled writers who are technologically savvy, in order to foster the continuance of the narrative legacy of the Navajo people and expand its reach into the digital realm, and to advance participation in the international digital revolution. The transition to digitization is everywhere affecting education, business, and the arts. The digitization of the publishing industry, in particular, and the ever-increasing scope and influence of New Media, is creating unprecedented opportunities for writers, artists, and entrepreneurs worldwide, including the Navajo Nation.

The unique hybrid nature of the program, which builds upon a core Creative Writing program with additional coursework in New Media studies, offers a unique opportunity for students to go beyond the scope of the traditional Creative Writing program— which typically culminate with the production of a hard-copy manuscript—and produce a visual or digital product. The Navajo Nation is producing more and more writers, filmmakers, web-based designers and new media artists, clearly demonstrating a growing interest in these fields.
