with apologies for duplicate postings, i hope i may impose on the list for 

some curricular guidance 
our department is looking for models of M.A. programs in media studies 
to help us in our own thinking about curricular innovations that we're 
in the process of shaping 
given that the term "media studies" is currently  used in a variety of 
ways, we hope to get a sense of which aspects of the field are emphasized 
in different programs, and in what configurations . . . our own programs 
in traditional "cinema studies" are well established; what we're 
interested in now are the ways in which other programs have moved 
beyond the traditional limits of this text [or history] based discipline 
into newer areas 
if your institution has an M.A. program in some version of media studies, 
we'd very much be interested in any information about it that you can pass 

along  . . . of special interest would be program descriptions, course 
descriptions, course curricula, and even syllabi of specific courses . . . 

while your own personal view of your institution's media studies 
curriculum would no doubt be particularly enlightening, we'd gladly settle 

for any institutional boiler-plate that provided some sense of what your 
program looks like 
since my guess is that most screen-L people would not be particularly 
interested in this, perhaps it would be best to answer off-list to

for myself and my colleagues, many thanks for anything you care to share
