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!
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 deadline for 3rd-year Media Studies students to apply for the Master's Promotion Program has been extended to May 15. On Friday, April 24, at 10am, we will hold a zoom information session for interested students to learn about the program and application process and to ask any questions. If you cannot attend, email [email protected] with any questions.
