Media and Cinema Studies (MA)

The Master of Arts degree in Media and Cinema Studies (MCS) provides students with the critical skills, historical grounding, and research methodologies for understanding the cultural and social impact of film, television and digital media in our globalized society.
Our graduate seminar classes investigate current media-related topics through interdisciplinary perspectives including national and transnational media, film and media histories. The impact and potential of new technologies, the power of audiovisual media in society, the role of media in the formation of identities, aesthetics and popular culture, are also examined.
The program is designed for those seeking to prepare for a PhD program or to further their careers in the film, television and digital media fields.

This program is now a concentration within our Communication and Media program. Requirements and other information found in this section are for previously enrolled students.
