Mass media saturate our lives, making media literacy an indispensable civic skill for the 21st century. Offering both a major and a minor, the Film and Media Studies (FMS) program at Tufts University is an interdisciplinary program that will educate you about the artistic potential and social effects of film, television and other modern media.

Theoretical and practical knowledge are equally essential for media literacy, and in FMS, you will take both critical studies and production courses. The program combines film with television and media studies due to their increasing convergence and is international in its outlook, thereby furthering Tufts' commitment to globalism and diversity.
