The Department of Communication and Media is committed to the study of mass media and emerging media and our faculty and PhD students are involved in cutting-edge research about the media’s impact on individuals and society. Some of our faculty study of media and communication with quantitative social science approaches; others take humanistic, qualitative, and critical-cultural approaches. Overall, faculty and graduate student research interests are organized around five broad, interconnected areas.
