The first and only graduate program of its kind in the United States, the M.A. in media and education is reinventing the profile of educators and storytellers in schools, media industry, and society. Media and education graduates will be experts in the complex synergies between media and education in our culture and will be on the leading edge of production, analysis, and innovative application of media in diverse environments.
The media and education master of arts program combines the faculty, resources, and exceptional legacies of two renowned Syracuse University schools: the School of Education and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
