Media studies is a broad field of studies that deals with the history, content and impact of various collective communication methods and tools, with a focus on mass media. The discipline places a great focus on the theoretical and cultural approach towards communication sciences, mass communication and communication studies.

Many schools offer joint degrees, combining media with other subjects. Vocational courses focus more on teaching practical and specialised skills such as efficient writing, editing techniques and the process of production in specific areas of the media.

Career prospects for graduates in media studies and mass media include roles such as journalist, media planner, broadcast producer, market researcher, social media manager, public relations consultant, copywriter, and others.
