Drs. John Urang and Chuck Caruso are teaching in the 2014-15 Humanity in Perspective program, a free six-month college course offered through Oregon Humanities.
Media studies, film studies and cultural studies have converged in contemporary life to become a timely, interdisciplinary area of study. The program engages questions and issues that deal with both the historical development and cultural consequences of media and globalization on everyday social and political life. Within the department, there are two BA programs to choose from: Cultural Studies or Media and Film Studies.
Our objective is to provide you with the analytic skill, critical vocabulary, practical sensitivity, and research know-how to make better sense of the rapid changes happening in the global and media landscape, which will empower you to become participants of change.
In a job market that demands persons with flexible minds, intellectual and practical savvy, the Department of Culture & Media is the perfect fit for our changing world.
