VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Media Research Lab

The goal of the Media Research Lab (MRL) is to provide expertise, assistance, and infrastructure to support media related research and creative projects across the institution and in the region.

Our core activities include:

  • training and supervising research assistants involved the analysis and production of media
  • supporting student-initiated, outside-of-class, media-focused projects
  • creating resources to capture and explain new developments in the media landscape
  • supporting targeted faculty initiatives on effective use of media tools and analysis for research and teaching

The MRL supports student collaboration with faculty on complex research projects, encourages the development of student-led activities, and creates opportunities for co-curricular experiential learning.
