What careers does a media and education master's lead me to?

Students in 21st century schools do not learn without mass media tools or content. It is imperative that education professionals have a high degree of media literacy in order to connect with today’s learners, and that media professionals have an understanding of the power media tools have in education.

An M.A. in media and education can shape a career for:

  • students interested in media production, the development of media literacy programs, or enhancing their classroom teaching.
  • content producers and media directors for educational television, not-for-pro t organizations, or charitable foundations.
  • directors or media integration specialists for after- school programs, libraries, social service agencies, and non-pro ts.
  • curriculum development and consultant positions in publishing, television, or higher education.
