About

Program Overview

With the urban and global communities as their living laboratories, students of the Media Studies and Production program at Temple University draw on their creativity, entrepreneurship, intellectual curiosity, and analytical abilities to navigate digital media in our global society.

Theory and practice are integrated into all areas of study in the major. Media Studies and Production students learn how to produce, evaluate, and manage media content for traditional and emerging media in a variety of genres, including information (news and documentary), music, comedy, sports, drama, and commercial and noncommercial persuasion campaigns. They study institutions that create, distribute, and investigate media products (e.g., production studios, television and radio networks, and audience measurement companies) and learn how to create and operate successful media businesses. Media Studies & Production students learn to think purposefully and critically about media, and examine the media's role in history, culture, and society from many perspectives. They also learn how to act ethically as they interact with the world both in careers in media institutions and as media consuming and producing citizens.
