A multidisciplinary department, Media Studies examines the various delivery systems for informational and cultural resources—print, film, television, video games, the internet, mobile phones—and their global social, cultural, economic, and political impact. Media Studies also looks at the range of institutions involved in shaping and transmitting representational material.

The undergraduate program encompasses the aesthetic and historical study of old and new media, as well as courses in advertising and marketing. After completing core requirements, Media Studies majors are encouraged to concentrate in areas that interest them.

The new graduate program is designed for individuals who want to understand and use the media to address social and political issues. With its mix of academic research and practical assignments, the curriculum is of value to current media professionals, as well as people from a diversity of backgrounds.
