Media Studies (Minor)
Students in the media studies program

Increasingly today, a thorough understanding of media offerings and their effects is essential for people who work in the fields of anthropology, art, business, education, information technology, the performing arts, political science, psychology, sociology, and related areas. Accordingly, the Media Studies minor offers students in-depth exploration of the history, theory, criticism, and effects of media offerings of all kinds.
