Media and Screen Studies

Media and Screen Studies is devoted exclusively to the study and production of media. Through a wide range of courses, students are exposed to different ways to think about media content, media platforms, and media production. When they graduate, students who major in Media and Screen Studies will be equipped with more than a set of practical skills; more importantly, as they enter the work environment MSCR majors will have the knowledge to think critically about a continually changing and volatile industry and the complicated relationships that exist between media, culture and society.

Our courses are organized around objects and issues central to understanding media. Reflecting the way in which media has traditionally been taught on campus, courses are organized around key media forms: television, film, and popular music. We also offer courses devoted to the media industries and their audiences. Other courses focus on the importance of media representations in cultural understandings of identity and the organization and content of media in the globalized markets and cultures of the 21stcentury.
