Mass Communication/Media Studies
|Description:||Information technologies directly affect nearly every aspect of our daily lives - the way we learn, consume, do business, construct communities and engage in leisure and cultural activities. These technologies have an impact upon the way we think, create, relate to others, and behave. They shape our world - or do we shape our world using these technologies?
As a student in the MIT program, you will have the opportunity to think about and explore the nature and impact of information technologies in today's world. You will engage in courses that develop your media and information literacy, and that encourage you to be an informed and critical analyst of the media and image-saturated social environment all around you. In particular, you will examine the convergence of communication technologies, as print, video and audio join together in cyberspace to create new methods of communication and information dissemination. You will also discover how media content is derived, filtered, edited, produced, owned and presented in its various cultural forms. If you are looking to be involved in the area of communication and information in society, Western's innovative program in Media, Information and Technoculture may be right for you.
