About

The Department of Media, Journalism and Film was born in 2013, giving students a one-stop spot to study all forms of media. The beauty of our department is its breadth of analytical and hands-on courses and opportunities. These help students think critically about the changing media world while producing cutting-edge work. We are a part of Miami’s College of Arts and Science.
