Undergraduate Degrees

With about 250 students in four majors, the University of Denver's Media, Film and Journalism Studies department offers a unique combination of majors that are popular choices among DU undergraduate students.

There are four degree programs and one minor to choose from:

Through a partnership with the School of Art and Art History, we also offer a BA and BFA in Emergent Digital Practices
