MIT Comparative Media Studies
The MIT Comparative Media Studies (CMS) program is committed to the art of thinking across media forms, theoretical domains, cultural contexts, and historical periods. Our work encourages the bridging of theory and practice, as much through course work as through participation in faculty and independent research projects.

The goal of our program is not to replicate existing paradigms, but as an early CMS backer said, to prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist. We consult regularly with leaders in industry, the arts, public policy, journalism, education, and the nonprofit sector, trying to understand contemporary developments, identify job and internship opportunities, and pinpoint skills and knowledge which will help prepare our students for new opportunities.
