The Department of Media, Journalism, and Film prepares students for the media world of today and the future through core and cluster courses.
The Department draws from the fields of digital audio/radio, digital video/television, and film production, scriptwriting and reporting, and broadcast (i.e. radio and television), print, mobile and online news. It addresses current industry standards, technological trends of convergence and community needs while meeting the university’s historical mission.
The Department unifies several intellectual and creative strands within the School that share the common concerns of communicating in effective ways at the local, regional, national and global levels. Students can earn a Bachelor of Arts specializing in media and film, journalism, and interdisciplinary studies (build a major) and a Master of Fine Arts in Film.
As film and television production students, you will study all aspects of the TV and filmmaking process, from development, scriptwriting, pre-production and production, through post-production and distribution. Our audio production students study the science of sound and digital audio, the recording of the voice and the environment, digital editing, mixing and mastering. And as broadcast and digital journalists, you will fulfill one of the most important roles in today’s society -- defenders of the First Amendment, the cornerstone of our democracy.
