Preparing tomorrow's media leaders
The Media School combines a liberal arts education with hands-on, professional training to propel students into the world as leaders in the media industry. We offer our students extensive, early opportunities and cutting-edge facilities and equipment to foster a creative community both inside and outside the classroom. Our three-fold curriculum emphasizes thinking about, managing, and creating media, and prepares students to succeed not only in their first jobs, but in future careers that may not exist yet — careers they may help shape.
Forging the future starts with a solid foundation
Our graduates understand the foundations of media, the present state of media, how media is changing, and how not to just accept change, but to determine what that change will be.
Understanding trends in media and how to innovate means understanding the past and the present, because present media used to be future media, and dominant practices and alternative practices often switch places. And sometimes old technology and techniques become new again.
Our core, unchanging values
Media change rapidly, but our core values are constant. We teach the creation of content that:
- Is grounded in good writing.
- Is ethical.
- Represents diverse voices.
- Amplifies and normalizes conversations about mental health.
- Protects and disseminates fact-based truth.
