Media Literacy Program Update
As you may have heard, the Media Literacy Master’s and Certificate programs were not able to make a full cohort for Spring 2014. However, we have a wonderful opportunity to join forces with the other track in our Master’s program: New Media and Global Studies.
This merger will allow you to begin your Master's or Certificate work, taking classes in both Media Literacy and New Media each semester. In this way, you can explore Media Literacy while also developing technical skill sets in New Media. We are excited to move ahead with this approach.
We are also pleased to announce that applications that have already been submitted and/or accepted may be moved to the New Media Program. If you have already applied/been accepted, please see information and steps outlined below.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by December 10 with the following:
- The term & program you applied for: Spring 2014 MA in Educational Media: Media Literacy
- The term & program you would like your application moved to: Spring 2014 MA in Educational Media: New Media and Global Education
A simple statement requesting that they ‘move’ your application.
If you would like to speak with someone in the Educational Media department regarding the academic details of this merger, please contact the Academic Coordinator, Dr. Herb Brown, at email@example.com or at 828-262-3132.
