In the BFA Media Arts program, the first two years include survey courses in cinema and media studies, introduction to screenwriting and 9 credits in Media Practices I, which provides creative exploration in a wide range of media, from Print, Web, Sound and Video, to AR, VR, 360 cinema, games, digital fabrication and other cutting edge technologies. In the third and fourth year, students take advanced courses in cinema and media studies, as well as specialty courses in transmedia storytelling, producing, digital culture, and interactive documentary, as well as further instruction and mentorship in creative media practices. Fourth year students may choose between creating a personal final project, a collaborative cross-university capstone project, or field placements with professional media organizations and businesses, which provide a springboard to graduation and beyond. You will also take courses outside of the Cinema and Media Arts Department, drawn from the rich offerings of the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (visual arts, theatre, music, design, digital media, dance) and the University at large.
