University of Regina (Department of Media Production & Studies)

The Department of Media Production & Studies mission is to teach, research and provide community service in the disciplines of film, video and new media. Both media production practice and critical media theory in creative, artistic, critical and industry forms are taught. Students are exposed to the widest possible range of learning experiences and programs offer a well-rounded, broad-based education that prepares them to map their own unique paths as artists, critics, historians and industry workers.

Film & Video Production
The four-year BFA program begins with an examination of the history, theory and analysis of motion pictures. Students are then introduced to the basics of film, video and new media production, including scriptwriting, directing, recording, editing, digital imaging and sound. Technical production courses are complemented by courses in media history and aesthetics. Areas such as Canadian, European, Third World and Hollywood cinema are discussed in the context of contemporary media culture.

Continuation in the BFA program is determined on the basis of portfolio, grade point average and an interview that takes place at the end of the first year of study. Students must have completed Film 100, Film 200 and Film 251 to be considered.

Graduates are prepared for careers as independent film, video and new media artists or as writers, directors, producers and industry workers. An internship program is in development to offer students apprenticeships at local media production companies. Students often find work before graduation. Nearly all move directly into production work when they graduate. Many have stayed in Saskatchewan and have participated in building the province's thriving media industry. Others are working independently as far afield as Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Hong Kong and Bangkok.

Film Studies
The four-year BA is a liberal arts degree. Students focus on media studies while developing basic skills of critical thinking, analysis, problem-solving, decision-making and communication. With these skills, transdisciplinary knowledge and a strong cultural awareness, graduates pursue careers in areas such as media consulting, journalism, teaching, arts administration, museum studies, advertising and creative writing.

The Department of Media Production & Studies holds a large collection of films, videos and DVDs, as well as a strong library collection specializing in all areas of media production and studies.
