The Media Studies minor allows students to focus on the interpretation, history, and artistic production of both traditional and emerging media forms, including print journalism, literature, film, television, and the internet.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about the history of media; the ways in which media connects to other forms of cultural expression; its evolving social impact, and how to analyze its products and effects.

Media Studies draws from courses across disciplines, including English, History, Sociology, Marketing and Computer Science. Students choose from a wide variety of electives based on their interest and focus. See Courses for electives offerings and prerequisites.
