Media Studies Minor - ARCHIVE

University Park, College of Communications (MEDIA)

PROFESSOR JOHN S. NICHOLS, Interim Head, Department of Film/Video and Media Studies

The Media Studies minor is designed for students who want to develop their knowledge of the mass media from a variety of approaches, including aesthetic, humanistic, social-behavioral, and legal-policy. This minor is a theory-based rather than a professional program. In fact, students in the minor may not take professional skills communications courses as part of this program. The minor consists of 18 credits, at least 6 of which must be at the 400 level. The minor is not available to students enrolled in any of the majors in the College of Communications.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
