Film, Media, and Performing Arts
Film, media, and the performing arts consist of a wide spectrum of communication theories and practices that confront how we think and feel individually and as a society. You can use them to make a statement. You can use them to express yourself. You can use them however you want.

Film and Media is a program in the School of Liberal Arts. Students must start with the Associate in Applied Science degree, then move on to a Bachelor of Science degree. Throughout the program, students make films while studying history and theory.
