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.

Visit DU

One of the best ways to determine if DU is the right fit for you is to schedule a campus visit. Meeting students, visiting with faculty and getting an in-person feel for the campus are important indicators during your college search. The Office of Undergraduate Admission offers daily visit programs which include an information session, campus tour and meeting with our enrollment specialist in MFJS. If you are a prospective undergraduate student and are interested in a daily visit, please schedule your appointment online.

Prospective graduate students and those who have applied to an MFJS master's program are encouraged to schedule a campus visit. Contact Kate Burns and she'll develop a customized visit for you.
