Media, Film, & Journalism Studies

Empowering you to create a purposeful life

We are committed to exploring the ways in which media and communications connect us with the world and how these relationships help shape the societies in which we live.

As a student within Media, Film & Journalism Studies, you'll develop critical thinking skills. You'll apply your broad-based understanding of communication in ways that better your own life and in the broader community in which you live. You'll cultivate a curiosity for personal creativity and sharpen your analytical and artistic literacy. 

Our faculty equip you with the tools, background and knowledge to succeed professionally and personally. We empower you to create a purposeful life that exceeds your expectations.
