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.

It is really hard to consolidate 4 years of memories into one, but I think the one that I will always remember is the National Championship run. The entire school came together and I will always remember dancing and screaming on 14th st. with a thousand other students. That was such a moment of unity and celebration and we rode that high for weeks after the win. Go Hoos!

Making a podcast for Celebrity Studies with Ellcessor was one of the best school experiences I’ve ever had. I loved that class and that project so much, and I’m so proud of what we made.

One of my favorite UVA memories was Lighting of my Lawn as a fourth year this past December. It was so fun to be surrounded by my friends and the entire UVA community to see the beautiful, magical Holiday display. It was a gorgeous night filled with fun singing and dancing, and the lights shined magnificently.
