There are a broad array of degree programs that focus on new media/social media/internet studies, emerging from within information schools, as Thomas notes, as well as in communication, sociology, and related fields.
A annotated list of programs is in the appendix of the "International Handbook of Internet Research", available in the "Back Matter" download here: http://www.springerlink.com/content/978-1-4020-9788-1/contents/

I am finding myself frustrated because when I search using a variety of key words, I end up with the urls of colleges and university's social media sites, not actual degree granting programs. (I did find the program at Birmingham School of Media). Thanks in advance!
