The Media Studies Track seeks to broadly educate students in communications media by encouraging them to develop their communication skills, written, oral, and visual. Courses include components to develop critical thinking, collaboration, and research skills. The flexibility of the program allows students to explore a range of courses in media theory, criticism, culture, and current media issues. Beginning level production courses introduce concepts of producing media messages.
With 21 credits of required out of department electives, Communications Media students in the Media Studies and Media Production Tracks are highly encouraged to pursue a minor in another program that complements their degree in Communications Media.
