Comparative Media Studies is now school’s second-largest major

Comparative Media Studies has grown to become the second-largest major in MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

A nice stat and a nice moment: since approval of its permanent major in 2008, Comparative Media Studies has grown to become the second-largest major in MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

While still a far cry from Economics’ 90 students, Comparative Media Studies has become a clear choice of major at a time when more humanities undergraduates demand ways to apply knowledge to the challenges right in front of them.

Kudos to Dean Fitzgerald, director William Uricchio, associate director Ian Condry, academic coordinator Becky Shepardson, and groundwork-layer/former director Henry Jenkins for such great success.
