Critical Communication & Media Studies

CCM students understand and value critical inquiry, social justice, and diversity. Do you ever wonder why your leaders and your media don’t look more like your own community? Do you question images and ideas related to race, class, gender, and sexuality? This humanities-based program may be just the place for you—an exciting and dynamic place to examine popular culture’s influence on ourselves—as well as society.

Intellectual engagement, in and out of the classroom, inspires Critical Communication and Media Studies (CCM) students to become contributing scholars, practitioners, and citizens who study and work in multiple forms of communication. CCM students learn from and research side-by-side with exceptional faculty. Students and faculty alike are inspired to explore how critical strategic thinking and writing influences and can contribute to the construction of both personal and public identities.
