Media Studies Program Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Media Studies
  • Welcome!

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Media Studies Program at AUB is based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that focuses on the role of the media -- local, regional and global – in society. The program, grounded in both the liberal arts and social science traditions, and with a particular emphasis on Arab media, encourages students to engage with the complexity of contemporary media.

    Our students (and faculty) come from diverse backgrounds and have various interests, but all share a passion for media. Our students explore the media both as an independent field, but one that also interconnects, influences and is influenced by other intellectual formations and traditions.
