We combine do-it-yourself (DIY) aesthetics and cultural theory to explore the role that media technologies play in everyday life.
As a student majoring in media, society, and the arts, you will locate yourself within the media landscape through critical writing, experimentation, and creative projects. Our approach to media is deeply grounded in ethnographic research.
