Interdepartmental Inquiry Combined With Multicultural Exploration

The Film, Television and Interactive Media program focuses on analysis of film style and content, film history, the relationships between cinema and culture, and the creative aspects of film production.

The program curriculum is designed to provide a broad overview of the history of the moving image, develop expertise in cinematic style and cultural meaning, lend theoretical sophistication to an understanding of the moving image, and ensure some appreciation of the practical and technical side of motion picture production.

You will develop an awareness of cinema as a complex narrative form and as an art. We want you to learn the rhetorical and syntactical conventions of moving images and how this language has developed historically. We help you master film, television and interactive media from both the theoretical and practical perspectives.
