A degree for leaders and trailblazers
The business of media is an ever-changing puzzle of factors including technology advancements, audience expectations, and government roles. With a concentration in media management, law and policy, you’ll gain a nuanced comprehension of the industry’s opportunities and challenges.
Media leaders are innovators and improvers. Whether you’re managing projects at a media company or running your own, you’ll leave with a foundational understanding of the industry and the entrepreneurial spirit to advance it.

Associate professor Julien Mailland speaks:
If you're interested in a career in the media industry, this is a concentration for you. The study of this concentration will give you a couple of things. One of them is critical thinking, and that's going to allow you to do well in any sort of business and professional setting. And second, we'll give you the skills that will help you to succeed in industry.
Mailland speaks in one of his classes.
Student Alec Neimand talks about his experience:
I’ve learned a lot, and I think that's a really cool thing about the media management program is you really get a diverse view of the media world. I think my sophomore year it was, I took classes about broadcast advertising, about television ratings, how ratings are changing in the internet world. And then in my junior year, my senior year, I've switched to more legal-based classes on communications law, on policymaking in the media world. And so I just think you get a really big view of the media industry, but every aspect of the media industry — from broadcast to the legal side to cable to the internet. I just think you get a lot of diverse viewpoints, and that's really great.
Students are shown taking a Media School class.
The students go into a variety of industries, especially related to the media industry. But really because you get management and law skills, they can integrate into any sort of industry that they want.
Associate professor Julia Fox speaks:
I think we have a really interesting, diverse group of students, both undergrad and grad, even though it is a state university. And obviously we have a lot of students from Indiana, but we have students from all over the country, all over the world.

I think my favorite part about being a student here is you just get such unique opportunities.
