Media Studies

The media studies concentration teaches students how to navigate an increasingly mediated and information-infused environment by developing their media literacy skills, theoretical and critical competence, as well as aesthetic and ethical sensibilities. The scholarly focus of the concentration is on four main areas: (1) Critical/cultural media studies with focus on power and identity in national, regional, and global contexts; (2) History, theory & production of digital media (journalism, radio, video/TV/digital film-making); (3) Media governance studies; and (4) Media effects. Graduates of this concentration typically pursue careers in broadcast, film and radio production, or continue their education in graduate programs.
