About the Program

An Interdisciplinary, Personalized Approach

The M.S. in Global Media and Cultures is an interdisciplinary joint degree offered by the School of Modern Languages and the School of Literature, Media, and Communication.

Our program prepares students to pursue professional careers that require advanced training in communication and media as well as expertise in a particular linguistic region of the world. We combine a strong foundation in media and cultural studies with advanced training in a critical global language. Hands-on cross-cultural experience is an important component of our program. Through graduate assistantships, internships, a final project, and a career portfolio, students can customize their experience to their own career goals.
