With the media pervasiveness that exists in our culture today, the opportunities available to you as a Media Studies major at the University of Sioux Falls are endless. A primary goal of the Media Studies program is to encourage new ways of thinking about communication, technology, and democracy within the context of a Christian worldview. This major seeks to provide you with a broad awareness of media's place within a social structure which appears to be more concerned with consumptive patterns of behavior rather than democratic discourse.

In addition to meeting the liberal arts core requirements of the University, you must complete 40-43 semester hours of media studies courses. All students must take the core media studies courses consisting of 25 semester hours. In addition, each student must select one of five concentrations within the major consisting of 18 semester hours each. The concentrations are Multi-Media Production, Journalism, Media Marketing, Media Management and Media Research. The Media Research concentration is designed for those students who expect to continue their studies at the graduate level.
