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.

The media lab on Wilson 2 became my home for three years after I joined the major. I cried, laughed, and edited some amazing stories in that room. Jessica deserves all the praise in the world! She helped me become a better editor and person. To all the Professors that saw me losing my mind through the windows of the media lab...you never judged me! Thank you!

My favorite UVA memory is every single Foxfield we had :). Oh, and also -- when Jeff Wittek (Youtuber/Member of the "Vlog Squad") unexpectedly came into my Celebrity Studies class taught by the best professor Elizabeth Ellcessor, and ironically talked to us about influencer marketing! It was quite the learning experience...!!!
