About

The Department of Communication provides opportunities for degrees at the BA and MA level. The Media Studies program is offered by William Paterson University of New Jersey.

Overview

About Media Studies at William Paterson University of New Jersey

The varied programs offer an integrated introduction to the fields of journalism, film, video, audio, and theatre. Courses of study in media combined with production-oriented classes make graduates productive citizens in an increasingly global and technological economy.  

The Media Studies track takes a generalist approach to understanding the social, economic, political, cultural, aesthetic, legal and ethical dimensions of communication media. Courses are designed to introduce students to an international and multicultural appreciation of the role of media technologies in a global society. Students have the opportunity to blend their critical studies in media with hands-on creative studies through elective media production courses. Students considering careers in the various media industries would benefit from this broad understanding and the program's emphasis on the critical analysis of the role of media in a society characterized by rapid media change.
