• provide students with multi-disciplinary knowledge in the operation of the media and the state of culture;
• enhance students’ critical understanding of the world of media and culture by exposing them to historical and comparative analyses of the subject;
• engage students in critical evaluation of media and culture studies in globalization and their impacts on social life in different regional contexts
