About the Institute for New Media Studies
The Institute for New Media Studies is housed in the Communication Studies department and dedicated to the trans-disciplinary study of new media as it impacts human communication, the institute will reside in a lab and collaboration space in room 106 in Malloy Hall. The institute provides resources to support members of the community in their use and understanding of new media approaches to teaching, research, and service. Faculty are welcome to participate by using the lab’s resources to support teaching, working with students on projects or research, and pursuing their own unique research agendas as they intersect with new media approaches.
Students are welcome to participate by engaging class projects in a more advanced way, partnering with faculty members to work on individual research, and seeking guidance in their own independent studies.
