Media Studies

The Radio-Television-Film program changed its name to Media Studies in 2014 to better communicate the scholarly and creative work the program conducts. The program uses a variety of research methods (including criticism, history and uses) and artistic production (filmmaking, scriptwriting and visual communication).

The Media Studies curriculum is designed to foster an appreciation, awareness and understanding of content and messages, origins, evolution, interrelations and processes of the mass media industries including:

  • the critical, historical, cultural and theoretical foundations;
  • creative and commercial contexts; 
  • the sociocultural, psychological and political impact on audiences;
  • visual and cultural literacy;
  • basic writing, design, production and technological skills; and
  • professional experience and contacts via the internship program.
