Situated at the bustling intersection of cultural studies, new media, critical theory, and popular culture, the burgeoning field of Media Studies examines the creative and critical practices of media consumers, producers, artists, and scholars, focusing on questions of representation, power, technology, politics, and economy.
The Media Studies concentration is offered in partnership with the Intercollegiate Media Studies (IMS) Program of The Claremont Colleges. Our concentration lets you design a course of study in the fast-growing field of Media Studies, which incorporates numerous exciting disciplines, including cultural and cinema studies, new media, visual studies, critical theory, popular culture, media production, and art history. Students study the creative and critical practices of media consumers, producers, artists, and scholars.
The concentration in Media Studies is available to School of Arts & Humanities students in the Applied Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, English, History, and Religion programs.
