Why Macalester for Media and Cultural Studies?

Media and Cultural Studies analyzes the poetics, politics and production of media texts, in alignment with the college’s commitment to internationalism, multiculturalism and community service, using theories and methods drawn from the humanities and the social sciences. The department offers an innovative 10-course major that includes opportunities for students to combine analysis, criticism and production.

Media and Cultural Studies offers video production equipment to students enrolled in production courses or for honors projects and other academic projects with faculty approval.

Before checking out any production equipment, students must read and sign an Equipment Use Contract.
