MA in Media Studies

The New Master of Arts in Media Studies
Learn + Engage

The MA in Media Studies is a 30-credit program combining theory, practice and real-world projects designed by a community of media makers and researchers working to effect real-world changes with and through media. Coursework introduces theoretical and practical methodologies spanning a range of critical issues, including urban development, economic and social justice, political activism, environmental responsibility, commodity culture, and cultural identity.

Potential students include activists, NGO employees, independent scholars, current media professionals, political, legal, and economic analysts, 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 to income inequality to the impact of commodity capitalism.

The Master of Arts in Media Studies is now accepting applications for the spring 2015 semester.

Students interested in Media Studies MA courses offered in fall 2014 may register on a non-matriculated basis.
