Overview

The Media Studies Program is devoted to the critical study of media culture. In a world where we interact daily with one screen after another on our cell phones, televisions, mobile devices as well as at the multiplex. Media Studies Program provides students with crucial knowledge pertaining to the range of ways media impacts society and culture.
Media Studies is a cooperative program that teaches the production, theory, history, and social context of the visual media including film, video, photography, and digital technologies. Our production courses are not oriented toward traditional narrative film or television; rather they stress “independent” narrative forms, video art, documentary, community-based media. The Media Studies component of the program utilizes theoretical and historical models which link different academic disciplines and eliminate boundaries separating media theory from media production.
The courses cover a variety of topics, and they reflect a commitment to social diversity and to intercultural and interdisciplinary understanding. They link film, video, photography, and digital technologies to such disciplines as art, anthropology, sociology, political studies and world literature.
