Undergraduate Bachelor Programs

BS Film, Media and Social Justice


Our Film, Media & Social Justice Program offers a strong liberal arts and social science educational foundation, in which the
students learn the latest in industry practices coupled critical pedagogy to analyze, develop, and produce media content that promotes positive social change.

The foundation of this mission is rooted in the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, founders of Mount Saint Mary’s University. Beginning in Le Puy, France, over 350 years ago, the sisters have served the world as strong social justice advocates and activists, working to improve the lives of the world's underrepresented populations and the most vulnerable among us.
