Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit

The Department of Media Studies offers a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies. The Media Studies major is an integrated program of study that focuses on the creative production and critical consumption of a range of moving-image media.

Students can customize their program of study, drawing from courses on various aspects of film, video, and digital media production; screenwriting; media theory, history, and criticism; and news reporting and analysis. This is enhanced by providing students with cocurricular opportunities to participate in on-campus media productions, the student-run campus radio station (WUAG), and other client-based and internship programs.
