MA in Media Studies

The New Master of Arts in Media Studies
Media + Social Change

The MA in Media Studies is a 30-credit program combining theory, practice and real-world engagement. We are a community of activists, makers, artists and researchers working to effect social change through media, as well as to understand the impact of media and technology on culture and society. Coursework introduces theoretical and practical methodologies spanning a range of critical areas including race and gender issues, urban development, economic and social justice, political activism, environmental responsibility, ethnicity, cognitive liberty, commodity culture, and cultural identity.

Potential students include activists, NGO employees, independent scholars, current media professionals, political, legal, and economic analysts, artists or others looking for an intellectual environment in which to challenge conventional understanding of the media in order to engage purposefully with a range of vital issues - from the environment, race and gender discrimination, to income inequality, and the impact of commodity capitalism.
