An environment of endless curiosity
Whether you’re looking to switch careers, enhance your existing skill set or advance toward a position in academia, The Media School offers a unique path to help you reach your goal. And you’ve found us at an exciting point in our history. Building on a foundation established more than 100 years ago, we’ve revamped our program to make it one of the broadest and most flexible in the country. In 2016, we moved to a historic building that’s been stripped to its core and rebuilt with the most advanced technology available. Here’s just some of what we offer:
- A dynamic, interdisciplinary, internationally renowned faculty
- Brand new, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for research and production
- A 17,000-strong alumni network throughout both the media industry and academia
- Key media collections and centers for collaboration
- A vibrant community of artists, foodies, sports fans and nature lovers.
What else makes our program unique? We offer funding opportunities to both M.A. and Ph.D. students, including full tuition waivers and additional stipends, through teaching and assisting with Media School courses.
