logophotoThe Cinema Department was founded amid the political activism and artistic experimentation of the 1960's. Today, as then, the Cinema Department is committed to a curriculum which recognizes cinema to be an independent, powerful and unique medium in the world. Cinema programs combine theory and practice; students are encouraged to engage in scholarship and to pursue production in all forms of cinematic expression.Undergraduate cinema majors can earn a B.A. in Cinema, a general program in theory and practice that also offers a distinct emphasis in animation; graduate students work toward an M.A. in Cinema Studies or an M.F.A. in Cinema. The Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts (BECA) Department offers course work leading to the B.A. in Radio and Television. The curriculum is designed to provide extensive educational experience for those who intend to use the modern media of electronic communication to serve the artistic, cultural, educational, informational, and social needs of society. The program involves both theory and practice, and students are expected to work successfully in both types of courses and activities. Graduates of the program are prepared for work in the broadcast and entertainment industries, in cable and on-line media, in video and audio production, and other areas related to electronic communication. Many graduates go on for graduate-level study in the field of mass media. Department of Cinema faculty.
