All students must take three core courses: Understanding Media Studies; Media Studies: Ideas; and Media Practices: Concepts.

The extensive curriculum and limited number of required courses offers many possibilities to design your own path through the program and sample a wide variety of subjects and approaches.
Many students focus their studies in one of several areas of focus designated by the School of Media Studies to promote a sequential investigation of a particular field or theme within the media studies discipline, but selection of a school-designated focus is not required to earn the MA.
