Understanding Media Studies is a required colloquium for all Media Studies students in their first semester of study. Students must register for the Monday night lecture and one working group (working groups mostly meet every other week). Every week, members of the Media Studies Principal Faculty and other invited guests from the University and the wider field of media studies and practice will share their own work and methods, thereby exposing students to the varied dimensions of research and practice in the field, and particularly in our Department. Over the course of the semester, students will meet the instructors, support staff, and colleagues with whom they will work throughout their graduate studies; become familiar with useful University resources; and develop skills and practices needed for graduate study. Students participate in moderating discussions, give group presentations and complete several assignments assisting them in developing an academic plan that allows them to map their paths through the program and the field of media studies. **Online-only students register for the lecture and a working group; access recorded lectures and lecture materials through the class website; participate with working group members via online video chat. Course registration numbers for online students are the same as above.**
