Media Studies Program Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Media Studies
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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 curriculum balances theoretical, research, critical and professional skills. It strives to establish itself as a world-class media and communication studies program rooted in the Arab region. The program aims to build well-rounded, ethical and competent communicators, media scholars, educators, and policy experts with rigorous research and critical skills, and a solid theoretical foundation.​​​​​

    Our students 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. We have a growing body of academic professors and professional instructors who are experts in their fields and committed to excellence in teaching, research, and community service.
