Goldberg Media and Communications Program

This program is designed for students who have a broad academic interest in mass media and communications, ranging from the advertising and mass media industries to television and film portrayals of particular groups to the ways in which digital media impact society.

Activities in this program include attending events featuring prominent individuals in the media world, engaging in critical discussions about mass media and culture, watching riveting documentaries, and connecting for fun social events. In the spring semester, there is a “dinner and a movie” film series that highlights superb documentaries and films.

Goals: This program provides interested students with an opportunity to engage in critical thought around the issues of mass media and to think about and discuss the ways in which media affect individuals’ thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors as well as our society as a whole.
