Students who earn a degree in media studies learn to examine the role of media and communication in society. By selecting appropriate electives, media studies majors may specialize in any number of roles in professional fields and graduate school in media studies, public relations and advertising, journalism and storytelling, creative multimedia production and other fields.
The Media Studies faculty seek to foster a critical commitment, expressed through many media (writing, public speaking, moving images, sound, etc.), to serve civic responsibilities and social progress. Our courses develop analytic thought, clear writing, visual literacy, effective speaking and cultural, global awareness, which prepare students for graduate study, career success, and a good life.
Our students come to Media Studies from all kinds of backgrounds and are united by our common commitment to critically and creatively engage the world of media, to become more fluent communicators, critical analysts, storytellers, and creative directors, and to leave the world a better place for our efforts.
