Media, Technology, and Society (MA & PhD)

groupThe Media, Technology, and Society area in the Department of Communication offers a diverse, interdisciplinary approach to the study of how communication technologies and cultural processes shape identities, communities, relationships, and subjectivities. Faculty research focuses on science & medicine, new media studies, critical pedagogy, media history, and surveillance studies, paying close attention to issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality in society. The MT&S area works closely with health communication and rhetoric, allowing graduate students to develop unique plans of study in fields such as health communication technology, rhetoric and cultural studies, digital rhetoric, and rhetoric of science and technology. The MT&S faculty offers graduate students a broad array of methodological perspectives, including qualitative and quantitative methods, discourse and conversation analysis, and critical cultural studies, preparing students to become academic leaders in emerging lines of communication studies.
