Visual & Media Studies
Visual & Media Studies is a new major, in which you have the opportunity to engage critically with a wide array of historical and contemporary media, from the printing press to post-network television.
Today our cultural environment is saturated with stimuli from the media, within which a visual component is often central. The ability to make effective critical judgments about media stimuli informs responsible citizenship and is essential to innovation in professional life.
The Visual & Media Studies program draws on a rich offering of courses from diverse academic fields across the College curriculum, including:
