Program overview

The MA in Media Studies will deepen your command of contemporary media culture, history and theory. Emerging technologies and media platforms affect the way that we perceive the world and our place in it. As producers and consumers of different forms of media, we are actively participating in an environment that gives agency to certain individuals and groups over others. Now more than ever, we need academic researchers and creators to examine the social, political and cultural dimensions of various forms of media. The program takes an interdisciplinary approach that combines elements of the humanities, liberal arts, social sciences and fine arts. Our students benefit from an active research culture led by a multitude of faculty research initiatives and creations, and pursue their own interest on topics such as video games, feminist media and Indigenous art.
