Media Studies, BA

USF’s Department of Media Studies offers students a liberal arts based program in media analysis and media production. Combining theory and practice, students learn how to analyze, deconstruct, and critique media, texts, and institutions and how to create, share, and collaborate using various forms of media. This program of study, located in multicultural and media-rich San Francisco, provides students with dynamic opportunities to study and create media.

Beyond the Classroom

Our students develop their media production skills by working on media projects all over San Francisco Bay Area, in the USF media lab, in internships for non-profits and media-related companies in the bay area, or in voluntary work on campus at the San Francisco FoghornUSFtv, and KUSF.
