University Majors

University of California, Riverside
Media and Cultural Studies, B.A.

The Media and Cultural Studies major focuses an interdisciplinary lens on the analysis of the dynamic relationship between media and society with special emphasis on race, gender, class, sexuality, and ethnicity as well as political economy and globalization. Our students critically engage in major debates about social and environmental justice within both global and local contexts. They also learn through practicing creative interventions in media ecologies, for example, creative, documentary, and ethnographic video; photography multimedia and digital production; and journalism. Media literacies are essential for the making of engaged global citizens, capable of moving flexibly between the applied and the critical, the professional and the scholarly, the empirical and the theoretical.
