Global Media, MA

The Master of Arts in International Media offers students a unique opportunity to learn international communication theory and research while at the same time developing professional production skills. This interdisciplinary M.A. program allows students to take concurrent courses in the School of Communication (SOC) and School of International Service (SIS) that emphasize strategic communication, research, international communication, and global media. In addition, students take hands-on courses designed to hone writing skills over a broad range of media, and production classes that introduce them to filmmaking, newswriting, digital imaging, web design, photography, and public communication writing. The media studies component of the program gives students a strong background in research skills, broad knowledge of global economic and political issues, and a deep understanding of how the media works, especially in an international environment. The production portion of the program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and ethical groundings to be professionally competent and literate managers/producers/commissioners.

You have the option of part-time study in the first and final semester. You'll take core courses for a semester before going to the University for Peace outside San José, Costa Rica, where you'll be immersed in sustainable development theory and practice for a year. You'll gain professional field experience during a mandatory summer internship that may take you anywhere in the world. The core of the NRSD experience is the chance to engage both in the classroom and in a developing country that is a model of sustainability. This is a decidedly different experience from what any US-only program can offer.
