Media Literacy Program Update
As you may have heard, the Media Literacy Master’s and Certificate programs are currently in the process of being redesigned as part of a new Master's Degree that merges concentrations in Media Literacy Education with New Media & Global Studies. Although we are not beginning new cohorts in Media Literacy, interested students have a wonderful opportunity to join forces with another concentration in our Master’s program (New Media and Global Studies) until the redesigned programs are rolled out.
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, Global Studies, and Instructional Design. 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 with the following:
- The term & program you applied for: (e.g., Spring 2014 MA in Educational Media: Media Literacy)
- The term & program you would like your application moved to: (e.g., 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 Program regarding the academic details of this merger, please contact the Academic Coordinator for New Media and Global Studies, Dr. Herb Brown, at email@example.com or at 828-262-3132.
