Program Information

School:University of Windsor - Faculty of Graduate Studies
Faculty:Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Degree:Master
Field of Study:Mass Communication/Media Studies
Description:The Communication Studies Department at the University of Windsor offers the only Master of Arts (M.A.) program in Canada with a curriculum focus on social justice. This distinctive approach differs from individualist and/or administrative communication programs that may downplay the social and political dimensions of communicative forms and practices and provides students with a unique opportunity to explore and address questions of power and social inequality in relation to such issues as ownership and control of media apparatus; cultural production and media representation; policy, law and regulation; new communication/information technologies; consumer society and corporate culture; globalization.

The student-centred program emphasizes both theory and practice and prepares students to take an active and meaningful role in various social, cultural, and political-economic milieus both locally and globally. With a faculty of 13 researchers exploring a wide variety of social justice issues, the master's program presents an excellent opportunity for committed students to advance their personal, professional, and academic development.
