The film, television, and media arts major and minor provides students with a detailed understanding of the visual, creative, and communicative power of various media through courses in theory, history, genres, styles, and structures in a collaborative, hands-on environment.
The program’s curriculum focuses on merging traditional media with new media, opening a world of exploration and creative possibilities. Students learn and apply the theories and practices of visual and audio storytelling including writing, design, production, cinematography, sound design, digital imaging and editing.
Benefiting from the personal attention offered by our faculty, you are mentored and led to understand the expressive power media holds while experimenting in order to find your creative voice, imagination and vision. As a discipline that requires constant practice and application, you are required to create an annual extracurricular production project. This helps develop collaborative partnerships and apply the knowledge you’ve acquired throughout the school year.
Upon graduation, you will be fully prepared to continue your education in postgraduate programs or join the workforce as a knowledgeable professional in such fields as broadcasting, public relations, advertising, telecommunications, and marketing.
