I am often asked about graduate programs in media, media literacy, culture, and religion. Here are some programs that I am aware of. This is not an endoresement – except for the Unviersity of London’s Institute of Education where I received my MA in Education in Media Studies in 1995. The program does not have a theological component, however. I went there for the media (literacy) education focus and though challenging, I loved the program and the school (faculty and international students; several of us keep in touch still.)
This list is only a starting point for those of you seeking degrees in these combined areas.
Catholic University of America http://mediastudies.cua.edu/
Center for Media Religion and Culture http://www.colorado.edu/journalism/cmrc/index.html
Boston College The Institute for Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry (not sure if they have a focus on media but it would be worthwhile to inquire http://www.bc.edu/schools/cas/theology/graduate/special/irepm.html
University of Edinburgh (Scotland) School of Divinity: Religion and Media http://www.div.ed.ac.uk/mediaandtheol
University of Southern California: Media and Religion http://uscmediareligion.org/
University of London-Institute of Education (a state university so no theological component) The degree title changed since I was there but content is directed toward media literacy education (and other areas) http://www.ioe.ac.uk/study/masters/PMM9_MCC9IM.html
If you have more suggestions, please post them.
