It is the mission of the Television, Film & Media Studies (TVF) Program to offer its students an excellent education in media studies. We offer an undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Television, Film and Media Studies, with options in Television & Film and Journalism. We also offer both a Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degree programs. Our M.A. degree program is in Communication Studies with a Television and Film Option. Our M.F.A. degree program is in Television, Film and Theatre and has 3 options: Acting, Production, Writing.
We seek to train students as competent and creative producers of media, and we seek to instill concepts and critical perspectives that will serve students not only as makers of media but also in their life-long relationship to media as citizens, consumers, and as creators.
The TVF program recognizes two necessary and complementary paths to achieve this mission. First, students must learn traditional and contemporary media production techniques and practices; second, students must pose and address critical questions about the artistic, social, cultural, political and historical interactions of media, emerging technologies, and society.
