Maynooth Media Studies and An Foras Feasa
Media Studies at NUIM offers BA degrees in Media Studies and Digital Media as well as the MA in Radio and Television Production. ### Mission Media Studies at NUI Maynooth prepares undergraduate and graduate students for lives and careers in a world in which media have become central to nearly every social, political and aesthetic activity. Students use their academic training in media studies at NUIM to make art, to engage with media industries, to purse research in academia, and to make policy. ### Description The study of media is a wide-ranging activity; the development of media channels, technologies and systems is wrapped up in the development of the societies we currently live in and how we live in them. Media Studies examines how mediated communication works through language and images, through particular technologies organised in political and economic systems, and for audiences that can be part of a shared public that lives with and uses media forms in diverse ways. Any one of these areas can form the basis for deep questioning and research, yet it is rare that one area can be – or should be – considered in isolation from the others. At NUIM we offer degree programmes in Media Studies and Digital Media at both a graduate and postgraduate level.
