Welcome to Latino Media Arts & Studies
The Latino Media Arts & Studies Program, or L-MÁS, is an endeavor of the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin with a three-fold mission: to support Latina and Latino students in the Moody College, to advance U.S. Latino and Latin American film and media, journalism, and oral history production, and to foster scholarship and teaching on these topics.
We know we have our work cut our for us. While Latinos are a growing force demographically, similar shifts have not taken place in the “reel world” of entertainment media, journalism, and advertising. Too often Latinos are misrepresented or simply not included in the mediated worlds we spend so much time in. Latino Media Arts & Studies is dedicated to addressing these challenges through providing opportunities, training, and support to the next generations of Latina and Latino media producers, journalists, and advertising professionals, and through supporting research in Latina/o media studies.
Latino Media Arts & Studies is a program of the Moody College of Communication. It is coordinated by faculty and staff in the Moody College's Department of Radio-Television-Film and School of Journalism.
