Saint Mary's reputation for excellence, innovation and responsiveness in education stems from its vibrant heritage as a Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts institution. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff that value shared inquiry, integrative learning and student interaction bring these traditions to life in the 21st century. The College is committed to the educational benefits of diversity.

Course Description

Students will be required to produce media criticism and creative media projects, as well as learn key theories about media and communication in the global, networked digital age. This course satisfies both of the Artistic Understanding (Analysis and Creative Practice) requirements of the Core Curriculum.

MA in Communication Studies or related field, PhD preferred. Must be able to teach basic media production to satisfy the core designation.

Candidates must reside in California.
