Communication technologies are increasingly digital, interactive, and global, which means that participation in the public sphere requires critical engagement across a range of media, platforms, and cultural contexts. Media & Communication Studies offers an innovative and interdisciplinary response to this need. Integrating theory and practice, MCS courses guide students to refine their communication skills and deepen their understanding of complex trends in technology, culture, and knowledge. MCS students learn about media literacy, the history and theory of communication technologies, media and globalization, and research methods. Emphasizing critical thinking, reading, multi-media composition, and self-reflection, the MCS curriculum equips students with the tools to navigate dynamic media environments and the capacity to reshape them.
