Emerging Media Studies

Emerging Media Studies is a multidisciplinary field that integrates critical analysis, creativity, and communication into strategic thinking applicable to business, entertainment, education, and other organizations. The MA and PhD programs in the Division of Emerging Media Studies use research to examine how social networks, new media, and virtual worlds intersect. Emerging Media Studies addresses the importance of understanding the social and cultural implications of an increasingly connected world. To do this, students draw on disciplines as wide ranging as media studies, communication, psychology, art, history, writing, philosophy, economics, and sociology.

The Division of Emerging Media Studies offers an MA in Emerging Media Studies and a PhD in Emerging Media Studies.
