Details

The MAS in Film and Media Studies will equip you with the analytic, creative and communication skills needed to interpret and create media texts and to become critical consumers of media, creative industry professionals, and rigorous scholars of media texts and culture. This program requires 30 hours of coursework and a written exam for the culminating experience.

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.
