MIT Comparative Media Studies, the parent program of GAMBIT, will be opening applications in August 2010 for graduate student admission in Fall 2011. From the CMS website:
Students may enter the CMS program with undergraduate degrees in a variety of disciplines, including liberal arts and sciences, computer science, journalism, economics, and management. We actively seek students from different backgrounds and with different career objectives. Many of our students already have professional experience in media-related fields and return to an academic setting to 'retool' so they may understand better the complexities of contemporary media culture.
CMS is especially interested in students who combine technical skills with an interest in the humanities. The program offers a terminal Master's degree, but a number of our graduates go on to complete PhDs in social sciences, film, media, communications, or cultural studies.

On-line and on-campus information sessions are offered from September through early December. These sessions provide a great way to speak with CMS faculty, students/alums, and research managers; to ask any unanswered questions you may have; and to get a better feel for the program. We encourage all prospectives to participate.
The online sessions are timed for the convenience of prospective students living in other regions of the world, but all prospectives are welcome to participate in them, regardless of where you live. To participate, simply click on this link during the scheduled hours of the session and log in with your name.
If you would like to attend an on-campus info session, please RSVP to cms-admissions (cms-admissions AT mit DOT edu).
