Firmly grounded in the liberal arts, the minor degree in Media Studies provides students with an understanding of different roles that media play in society. The minor introduces students to humanistic and social science traditions of media research, teaches students about the influence that media forms and institutions have, and provides instruction in the critical evaluation of different kinds of media communication.
