Comparative Media Studies Celebrates 10th Anniversary



In ten years, CMS has grown from a modest proposal by Professor Henry Jenkins and Dean Philip Khoury into a preeminent international program with the most talented media graduate students; with partnerships established with governments, film producers, Pulitzer Prize winners, and others; and groundbreaking projects that shape the future of everything from childhood education to government accountability.

The goal at CMS remains the same: to create new paradigms, and to prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist.  The CMS community consults regularly with leaders in industry, the arts, public policy, journalism, education, and the nonprofit sector, to understand contemporary developments, to identify job and internship opportunities, and to pinpoint skills and knowledge which will help prepare CMS students for new opportunities.
