Welcome to the Department of Film and Media Studies

The Department of Film and Media Studies boasts a highly ranked film arts and studies program that is based on mutual encouragement and collegiality.

As part of the School of the Arts we share the same passion for teaching a strong foundation in the principles of the liberal arts:  development of a vision from artistic expression that springs from the collaboration of many voices.  Students learn in a team based environment that provides them with the technical knowledge and critical thinking necessary to produce both informative and entertaining films.

The current facilities house over 11,000 square feet of state of the art production spaces where filmmakers and scholars can research, develop and practice their craft.
