Congratulations to Professor Aynne Kokas on the release of Trafficking Data.

UVA's Department of Media Studies analyzes media culture, technology, labor, literacy, policy, infrastructure, and inequity. Our goal is to provide students with the tools to evaluate and shape media. With global reach, our faculty and students examine media from a variety of perspectives that include media history, aesthetics and form, audience analysis, media uses, the impact of media on public opinion, and the relations between media and the law.

Career Center Application Days

Each spring, the Exploration Community in the Career Center, in conjunction with other Career Communities and departments across Grounds, seeks to help students in the process of applying to application based majors by looking over their application materials (resumes, personal statements, etc.). We plan to offer one date for students interested in applying for the Media Studies major this year. We plan to host the event on Tuesday, January 23 from 1:30-4:30PM in the 1515, Dance Studio.
