The American Studies Program at University of Virginia has an MA
program that is centered around hypertext and hypermedia publications
as an expression of interdisciplinary scholarship. Alan Howard is the
coordinator. See their fab website at http://xroads.virginia.edu for
more info

I think the English Dept at UVA has similar emphases. Other than this,
I'm sure the rhetoric/composition programs at Michigan Tech, Texas
Tech and some of the other well-known rhetoric schools have the kind
of thing you are describing.
