Mass communication/media studies programs in the U.S. and U.K. can serve as models to lead students into successful learning through interdisciplinary study. This paper outlines five strategic imperatives for the study of mass communication/media studies in the U.S. and U.K. Curriculum improvements are suggested for helping students evolve and grow into leaders in the field.
