Department Website

Program Description

The BS program in Media, Culture, and Communication/Global Public Health (MCC/GPH) combined major bridges the sociological, political, and cultural study of media with public health to develop strategies for improving the conditions of global populations. Identifying solutions to challenges of this scale requires an expert understanding of societal engagement with emerging technologies and transcultural information flows.

Course work is combined with experiential learning and global exposure to ensure that you are broadly trained and uniquely prepared for a variety of careers. A semester at an NYU global site is a requirement for all Global Public Health combined majors.


Departmental Honors: Senior Honors Seminar for selected students with at least a 3.75 grade point average, culminating in a senior thesis/project based on faculty-supervised independent research.

Undertaking the Honors Program in Media, Culture, and Communication is an exciting but demanding opportunity for students with outstanding academic records and a serious intellectual curiosity about the discipline. The program prepares and guides students to pursue original, independent research under the supervision of a full-time faculty member during the senior year.
