City College of New York (Department of Media and Communication Arts)




To study in New York City is an immense advantage to anyone studying media and the arts. While attending City College, students have access to all media centers, from marketing meccas such as Madison Avenue, and the financial capital Wall Street, to museums such as the Museum of Television and Radio and the Guggenheim. Living in a cosmopolitan city is a life lesson in cultural diversity and fodder for creative thought and statement.

Established in 1984, the Department of Media and Communication Arts combines history, theory, and critical analysis with hands-on practical experience. This liberal-arts based, professionally-oriented undergraduate degree program offers a broad education in media studies with specializations in the following areas:

The Department of Media and Communication Arts offers graduate program leading to an M.F.A in Media Arts Production. This intensive two-year program prepares students to navigate and prosper in the quickly expanding field of media arts, including film and digital video production with an emphasis on strong, original storytelling in documentary and fiction. This is the only graduate-level program of its kind in the region offered at an affordable and accessible public institution. The City College campus is located in New York City, the hub of international Media Arts Production. The M.F.A. capitalizes on the ready access to the talent, organizations, production facilities and other resources to build bridges to the media arts field for its students. Our students create the imaginative, socially meaningful, and cost-effective works that have become the hallmark of the independent media arts community.

The capstone of the program is Cityvisions, a two-day showcase and festival of MFA films held each spring at a major Manhattan theater. Our guest speaker for Cityvisions 2006 will be DA Pennebaker. Guest speakers at past Cityvisions include Sigourney Weaver, Hal Hartley, Peter Bogdanovich and Albert Maysles.

Since its inception in 1997, graduates of the MFA in Media Arts Production have taken their film and video works directly into the professional arena—television broadcast, international distribution and awards at major festivals.
