Students embarking in the Liberal Studies Major with a concentration in Media Arts and Society will be grounded in the discipline of English with a cultural studies approach. This LSM aims to engage students in critical discourse about the uses and effects of modern media, increase knowledge about media technology, and encourage creative thinking through the use of such media. This concentration has a hands-on component in which students work directly with video, graphic design, digital photography, and sound design for example.
Students are encouraged to spend a full semester abroad at a partnering institution with state-of-the-art media production facilities, such as RMIT University in Australia. Students are also advised on capstone projects, competitions, and internships, such as the Cannes Film Festival Student Internship Program organized by the American Pavilion.
