welcome to the media studies department


Media is everywhere, and its influence is profound.

It shapes the world you live in. It shapes the way you live in the world.

It shapes who you are.

In the Department of Media Studies, you will earn your B.A. while you learn how to analyze media from the inside out.  Explore how it changes your culture and the cultures of others.

You will learn to approach media with fresh eyes and new tools for critical analysis from economic, historical, social, aesthetic, psychological, political, and ethical perspectives. 

And you will prepare for graduate study, and professional work in media-related fields.
