While our department's courses are primarily theoretical, the MA degree in Media, Culture, and Communication from New York University is highly flexible, allowing numerous electives from across the University aligning with your personal academic and professional trajectories.
Media business at NYU Stern, media law at the NYU School of Law, digital design and interactive technology at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and media ethnography in NYU Anthropology are just some of the many elective options made available to you. We also offer graduate study abroad courses in Europe, Asia, and Latin America that examine media in comparative contexts.
