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.

Life simply won't be the same without sunny afternoons on the Lawn with my friends.
I am on leave this year, but I truly miss the warm smiles and bright insights of the media studies students. The vibrant energy of the UVA media studies community brings me tremendous joy, from reading remarkable papers to learning about cool new media from students and faculty. Don't hesitate to connect on Twitter@shotinshanghai. I look forward to staying in touch!

Congratulations to the Media Studies graduates! I have had the good fortune of teaching many of you over the last few years, and I have loved each semester of working with you. As you move on to the next phase of your lives, I encourage you to, as I often say in class, "pursue your passion." I hope to see you all at your fall graduation ceremony, and please let us know where life takes you!
