Bryant University Professor Susan Baran speaks to students.

Program Overview

Media Studies provide the opportunity for you to think across media forms and cultural contexts. It is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the content, history, and effects of various media, including television, film, and digital technologies. 

The program offers you the chance to both make and reflect on these media. You will learn to analyze media texts, situate them within historical contexts and engage in theoretical debates about them. You will also experiment in the production of a variety of media texts, and will learn to create original work, analyze and appreciate the work of others, and assess the wider impact of mass media on public life.

Fundamental to Media Studies is the cultivation and honing of communication skills necessary to succeed in our mediated world.
