Many graduate programs ask you to choose between studying media and creating it. The innovative MA in Media Studies at The New School expects you to do both. It allows you to integrate studies in media history, theory, research and management with production work in film, audio, video, and digital media—so you can advance in almost any area of this wide-ranging field.
Media studies graduates use their degrees to enhance their current careers or build new ones. Our graduates work in fields ranging from advertising, non-profit management and media research, to media advocacy and education. Some stay in the world of academia by pursuing PhDs and going on to become university professors. Still others seek creative outlets as artists, filmmakers, and designers.
Flexibility and interdisciplinary study are fundamental to the success of this program. At The New School, you work closely with an advisor to identify your interests and select courses that fit your goals. Most classes are held in late afternoons, evenings, and weekends to accommodate the schedules of working professionals. And our online option allows you to take classes anytime from anywhere.
