Media Studies

Become a part of media’s evolution.

On your way toward earning a master of science in media studies, you will receive a well-rounded education in broadcast and electronic communications as well as such practical applications in management, marketing and programming. You’ll have a dual focus in practical and critical skills and, at the same time, be able to create your own course of studies that fits your career goals. Guided by a well-regarded faculty who are also working professionals in the field, you will use the latest equipment in modern, industry-standard facilities, and be introduced to some of the most accomplished professionals in the field who will offer you valuable internships and mentoring opportunities.

The teachers are very supportive, and if you present a good plan for what you want to accomplish while in the program, they’ll let you do it.
