What kind of storyteller are you?

Whether you’re a freshly minted high school graduate or a scholar in the making, if your passion is telling, researching or analyzing stories, you belong at The Media School.

We offer four undergraduate degrees, three graduate programs and 13 minors and certificates.

No matter which program you choose, you’ll spend equal time in the classroom learning and out in the field “doing.” You’ll be encouraged to engage in research. To get out there and create media. And to put what you learn to work in an internship or travel experience.

You'll graduate ready to join the ranks of successful Media School alumni all over the world.

Graduate studies

Our graduate programs will prepare you for either a career in the media industry or a position in academia.

If you’re interested in gaining professional skills, our Master of Science in media is for you. Choose one of five concentrations: data journalism, design and production, journalism, management and strategic communication.

If you’re more interested in a scholarly path, opt for a Master of Arts or a Ph.D. in media arts and sciences. Both options will prepare you for a career in media research and analysis, or academia.

No matter which graduate degree program you choose, you’ll study with top faculty in state-of-the-art facilities, with a wide variety of research resources available to you.

Precollege programs

You don’t have to be in college to study at The Media School.

Every summer, we offer three programs for high school students who’ve already identified their passion for media: the High School Journalism Institute, the Cinema Academy and Game Development Camp.

We also host the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee, where area students compete for the regional title.
