While the media arts have traditionally been studied as independent disciplines, our program provides a more comprehensive approach that views them as convergent. We recognize the importance of understanding the history of film as an art form, for instance, but also the need to view it in relation to television and digital media. We are committed to integrating the study of such media convergence into our curriculum, both as units within courses and through the design of new courses entirely devoted to that phenomenon.
