|Faculty:||Faculty of Arts and Science|
|Field of Study:||Mass Communication/Media Studies
|Description:||Dive beneath the surface of the stories we hear and tell ourselves in our culture to discover the way meaning is made. Students will examine cultural messages with a critical eye that doesn’t miss the nuances of a profoundly complex society. You’ll learn to “read” and analyze the meaning manufactured by everything from what Justin Bieber’s wearing to how the newscast is put together. Developing a cultural vocabulary will allow you to engage with the modern media environment critically, and interpret the political and ideological orientations of the messages we consume.
The Major in Communication and Cultural Studies is excellent preparation for graduate studies in either subject. Our students go on to careers in the media, advertising, and public relations or any field where superior analytic and rhetorical skills are valued.
