In Trent’s Media Studies program, you’ll learn to navigate this environment by marrying theory and practice. You’ll study the influence of advertising and ideology, the economics of media corporations, and the principles of consumer design. You’ll also gain real, hands-on experience: fabricate 3D printed objects; try your hand at circuit bending; shoot on Super 8mm and 16mm film; create fake social media profiles; and more.
