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.
Please note: While this portion of the website is presently being updated to reflect our ongoing Q2S transformation, for more information on courses and requirements for this concentration, please visit the course bulletin.
