“This is a fascinating time to study media. Conspiracy theories, # activism, calls for diverse representations, social media influencers – all place media at the centre of a changing society. For anyone with ambitions to work in the media and communications industries, our media studies degree provides essential skills and critical knowledge of the dynamic media environment past, present, and future.”
– Dr Sue Pell, Programme Leader

What our students say

“My favorite part about the BA Communications program was how attentive my professors were to my work. The professors, to me, felt like friends and I could easily come with questions as they helped guide me in the right direction. Not only that, but they pushed me and allowed me to be freely creative. In my career now, as a journalist and photographer, that mind-set has allowed me to work as a multi-faceted artist, and to this day I fully remember the work I put in as a student and they can still be used as great examples in my field.”

“While I didn’t major in Communications: Media Studies, I did take a great deal of the media studies courses because they met with some of my core requirements. I found the program to be very useful. The professors came from a variety of backgrounds and different countries, giving me an expansive exposure to different ideas and concepts. The curriculum also helped me later on in my professional life. The demanding course material fostered a strong work ethic and drive that I have since carried into my working life.

Since graduating from ż, I have had the amazing opportunity to intern and work for institutions like The Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, The Smithsonian’s branch in Pittsburgh, The Senator John Heinz History Center and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

I have had the remarkable responsibility of working for global film festivals and conducting research in world renowned archives.

“I truly believe my time at ż aided me in my ability to perform the tasks and jobs I have held since graduating.”
