  1. Hi all! I am in my last year of my undergraduate and am majoring in Film and Screen Studies (minoring in Critical Race and Ethnicity Studies and Urban Studies). Right now I am feeling pretty lost in searching for a masters program. I was interested in Columbia at first but have read that a lot of classes are undergrad and it is not very contemporary. I was wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences they have had in a similar program/if anyone has recommendations. A lot of film programs are MFA and production based whereas I am more interested in the studies/theory asp

  3. Hi all, Not a lot going on in terms of film studies discussion, and I know it's early, but I'm interested in sharing information before outcomes (so that hopefully those outcomes themselves will be better). I've been disheartened with university websites, which really don't give much sense of a program's culture or a department climate, nor do they always spell out funding package information or departmental theoretical approaches. Additionally, I don't know a lot about what all of these cities are like. I'm considering the following programs: University of Pittsburgh UC
  4. I'm gearing up to apply to 5-8 schools this year after my first year of rejection (I would reject me too, it was rushed), and I'm really trying to get a feel for what the best practice is for statements of purpose and writing samples particularly when it comes to a planned dissertation topic. Is it better to mention that you have a topic you very much want to research and write a dissertation on or better to not mention it? If you do mention it, would it look favorable to write a short (15-20 page) academic paper on the subject you plan to use as a building point for your dissertation? O
  5. Looking a the curriculum, this program aligns with my interests and past studies perfectly. However, I can't find much about its reputation online and according to its website only "Approximately 30% of students in the program receive some type of financial assistance from the university, such as fellowships, scholarships or graduate assistantships." which are both red flags for me. I've been looking at fully-funded interdisciplinary media studies programs that have reputations outside of their websites until this point. Does anyone have any information about this program or programs simi
  6. Hello, My question is for anyone who has been accepted to media related PhD programs. I'm looking to apply for Communications/media studies programs and wanted to know for those who have been accepted to these programs what type of background did you have: - what was your GRE score? - past college GPA's - did you have any publication experience? - did you have and related work experience in the field of communications/media studies/film? - what school were you accepted to and what did they offer full funding?
  7. Hi just wondering if anyone wants to give a generalized honest opinion, am I wasting my money applying to PhD programs in Media Studies when I only have my BA? I know you need to know a lot more about me and to read my writing to actually answer that with full confidence but I'm wondering if there is sort of a general rule that almost all PhD admits already have their Masters or have spent significant time working in the field. I'm sure a masters helps one's chances but is someone getting into media studies (rtf/cultural studies type) PhD programs without it an exception or just a slight minor
  8. I'm currently applying for Phd programs in media studies. I noticed on some applications they ask for a writing sample, however I don't actually have any current research articles to submit. I did complete a Master program, where I did a short documentary as my research thesis vs a full length thesis paper. So my question is what should I do to complete the writing sample portion of my application? Also are there any tips anyone has for ways that I can make a strong application. I currently have a BA in TV Production, an MS in Journalism and several years of media and teaching experience in tv
  9. Hey everyone, My area is a bit niche, and I'm working on putting together a writing sample at the moment. I'm a first division BA, MA, Mphil holder from Delhi University, and I'm an ad-hoc teacher at the English department at Hindu College currently. I worked on participatory fandom cultures, fans as creators and the clash of signification between media producers and fans for my MPhil degree. It was a dissertation rooted in years of spectatorship - as an Indian fan in overwhelmingly white fan spaces dedicated to the consumption of Anglophone media, I was interested in documenting the kind
  10. Anyone else apply to MCM this cycle? Thoughts on when we might hear back? The program is maybe not the best overall fit for me, but Joan Copjec is my idol, and it would be insane to study with her...
  11. I'm just curious about my list of programs going forward into the acceptance/rejection period. What would you hope for? Just curious generally what people think of this list and what the strengths and weaknesses are, where I can expect problems and where there might be hope. It will likely appear in my signature too, but just in case here's my scorecard currently: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute STS PhD (Accepted) -heading to campus for visit Feb 27th MIT HASTS PhD (Likely Rejected) Northwestern MTS PhD (Likely Rejected) UC Santa Cruz Hist. of Consciousness PhD (Likely Rejecte
  12. Hi everyone, I studied for the GRE for months hoping to improve my quant score but I ended up getting a 162 in verbal and a 152 in quant. I'm applying to cinema and media studies MA programs, and I'd like to be in SoCal. Out of all of the schools there, only a few offer the program as an MA degree, so I don't have a lot of options. As of now, I'm definitely applying to UCLA and USC, and one CSU, and obviously UCLA is my top choice. I have a 3.88, a good amount of extracurricular's during undergrad (I was a peer mentor, volunteered with kids/mentor programs, and am currently interning as
  13. Hi, all – I apologize in advance if any of my questions are glaringly obvious, but I require gradcafe wisdom on submitting a multimedia essay to PhD programs in English literature and similar disciplines like cultural/media studies. As a point of reference, my essay examines the ideological edifice of two Steve Bannon documentaries, Torchbearer and Generation Zero, and draws on the theoretical framework of S. Žižek's The Sublime Object of Ideology. Such analysis requires that I embed clips from either film as textual evidence, and the platform I decided upon was WordPress, buying my ow

  15. Just found this awesome site! So far, I have heard from 6/7 schools. Waiting to hear from University of Oregon PhD in Media Studies. Has anyone heard from UO? I had an interview on 01/31/17 and they said mid-Feb. for decisions but now we are approaching mid-March. Amitted: George Mason University, University of North Dakota Waitlisted: Penn State University Rejected: Cornell, UC Davis, Washington State (Pullman) Still Waiting: University of Oregon
  16. Hi everyone! So i'm kind of in a dilemma, I recently got accepted into Temple University's Media Studies and Production Master's Program and into Indiana University's Media Arts and Sciences Master's Program. I really like both programs but I'm definitely having trouble deciding... Temple is offering me a one time scholarship for $10,000 and when I spoke with the Grad Program director at Indiana he said the Master's program is fully funded. Even so, i'm still not sure which school is the right fit for me. Any advice on how to decide or any opinions on the schools' programs?
  17. Hi, I'm new here and was hoping to get some feedback on good fits for someone interested in media studies, visuality, and theory. In particular, I'm looking for MA or PhD programs and faculty that share my interests in the body, visuality, subjectivity, and desire. In terms of approaches, I tend to gravitate toward queer theory (Foucault primarily), aesthetics ( interested in applying Heideggerian notions of worlding to contemporary transnational art), and psychoanalysis. I know there are some obvious contenders out there (NYU, Brown, Duke), but I'm a bit worried because my grades aren't
  18. Hello guys! I am writing this to ask a question if I can have chances to get admission from grad schools considering my low GPA. I am a future applicant with a Bachelor of English Literature degree and 10 years of professional experiences in journalism in South Korea. I won several journalism awards with international reputation. Now, I am going to apply MA or MS in comm/media/journalism programs as many as possible this year. Unfortunately, after having read the degree program overview of some programs, i figure the programs require a minimum 3.0 GPA(on a 4.0 scal
  19. Never know where these belong. Let's get this started. I've already heard back from most of the schools I applied to. Waiting on Brown and NYU. I think NYU has already sent out interview requests, but Brown has been unusually quiet. Can anyone confirm if the Modern Culture and Media PhD program has sent out decisions? For reference: Chicago - Admitted Pittsburgh - Admitted Michigan - Admitted Northwestern - Interview Texas-Austin - Interview Wisconsin - Rejected
  20. Hi all! A prospective Media Studies MA student here in need of a little guidance. I've been accepted to the Media Studies program at New School and the Media, Culture and Communication (MCC) program at NYU with similar funding offers (about 40% merit + some need). I have housing in New York, so I'm confident I'll end up choosing one of the two for Fall 2016. I go to a small liberal arts college without any kind of media/communications department, so my professors know very little about the programs. Same goes for me, aside from basic stuff about faculty/quality that convinced me to a
  21. I've done this before. The application process, not the blogging (though I have done that too). I'll interrupt this digression with another: I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Russian, a Master of Arts in Russian and Eastern European Studies and a Master of Arts in Slavic Studies. This is important to know because not only did my academic career diverge in the middle of my undergraduate years, it did it twice within the final days of my terminal graduate degrees. This could be indicative of a character flaw (mercurial, prone to boredom) that might be useful if I were more intelli
  22. Hey all! Anyone else out there applying for Communication Studies or Media Studies Ph.D programs for Fall of 2012? What are you doing while you wait it out, and where have you applied? I applied to UNC-CH, UT-Austin (RTF), and Georgia State University (Moving Image Studies) for my communication schools, and then a variety of other programs in other disciplines. Just wondering if there's anyone else out there waiting for decisions. Also, what kind of research do you want to do?
  23. I could not find a recent post for all the students considering film/media/television studies on the MA level... so I thought I would start one! I have been searching for the past month for some of the less popular MA programs, and frankly I could use some help. Here is a list of some schools and programs I am considering: University of South Florida - Masters of Liberal Arts in Film Studies (Did my undergrad work here so this is more of a backup) Emory University - MA Film Studies University of Florida - MA Film Studies Indiana University, Bloomington - MA Film and Media Studies G
  24. Hi! I have a GPA of around 2-2.5. in equally bad in both undergrad (commerce, business, accounting) and Masters (Economics). I have a decent GRE score of above 1400, quant - 720-800 and verbal 700-800. Final score will be available in mid-november. I am interested in pursuing a PhD in communication. Something like the program at UC San Diego seems very suitable to my interests, but I might be aiming too high. Can anyone kindly suggest point to me the kind of universities that I should target? I will need full funding... Any advice will be highly appreciated.
  25. Hi everyone, I am in the process of applying to graduate programs. I have narrowed my choices down to the following: Master of Media Studies - Concordia University Master of Immigration and Settlement Studies - Ryerson University Master of Communication and Culture - Ryerson and York Universities (joint program) Master of Industrial Relations - Queen's University Master of Industrial Relations and Human Resources - University of Toronto My question is does it look bad to referees when you are applying to programs that are quite different from each other? I do have a genuine intere
