The MA Program offers a unique opportunity for students to pursue their scholarly interests in a supportive environment that encourages them to address issues of social justice. The program merges two scholarly approaches to the study of communication, media, and culture, namely political economy and critical cultural studies. The curriculum is designed to promote original and thoughtful interpretations of everyday communicative and symbolic environments, and to facilitate research on the definition, evolution, and transformation of rights and communicative practices through policy, culture, and/or custom. Students will develop practices and strategies aimed at social justice initiatives.

The program covers various topics of interest, including the ownership and control of media, information technology, and globalization, communication networks, new media, alternative media, and social justice movements. Additionally, it explores cultural production, consumption, identity, politics, and practices of representation (such as class, gender, race, ethnicity, and sexuality) as well as popular culture. The program also delves into the commodification of information, culture, and communication.
