B.A. in Media & Film Studies

Earn your bachelor's in media and film studies from Marylhurst

Request more information about this program or any other Marylhurst program.

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Media and Film Studies program is dedicated to interdisciplinary inquiry about the content, form, production, history, social effects and political implications of media in all its various expressions — from print to film, television, radio and the Internet.

Like cultural studies, media and film studies employs interdisciplinary methods and insights from art history, anthropology, literary theory, media studies, history, sociology, psychoanalysis, film studies, semiotics and philosophy.

Media and film studies is particularly interested in situating media within the broader context of historical development (comparative analysis), production (technology, markets, institutions), aesthetic forms ("high" and "mass" culture, narrative, genre), and social formation (ideology, reception, and consumption).
