Four Plus One: Media Studies and Production

The Klein College of Media and Communication Four Plus One Master of Arts in Media Studies and Production program enables Media Studies and Production Studies undergraduate students to pursue a Master of Arts (MA) in Media Studies and Production in only one additional year.

During the second semester of junior year students begin taking graduate courses, which will count toward both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. After earning the bachelor degree, they complete graduate coursework, including two summer semesters the following year.

Students in Klein College’s Media Studies and Production MA program deepen their understanding of theory and method to inform production and research. They study cultural processes of media communication, media industries and technologies, and media networks and organizations. The program is creative and flexible, so students can choose courses that align with their professional and academic goals. It’s ideal for students who want to

  • become academics
  • create media;
  • manage production firms;
  • produce, study and critique media; or
  • work in law or public policy.
