DeSales University (Department of Performing and Fine Arts )

Maybe it's the friendly, unpretentious nature of our students, faculty, and staff, or the upbeat spiritual perspective of the Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales, who have shaped the University and its character. Maybe it's because of our great academic programs, the personal atmosphere of our small suburban campus in Pennsylvania's scenic Lehigh Valley, and our supportive learning environment. At any rate, there's a remarkable experience to be found at DeSales University.

The Department is the Largest Department in the University and is housed in the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts, a state-of-the-art facility located at the eastern side of the campus. The Department boasts a thirty-five year history of success, and has grown precipitously in the past ten years, with the founding of The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, the professional extension of the Theatre program, and the addition of the TV/Film program in 1997.

We take a very hands-on, professional approach. Students here learn how to use the equipment in their first year. That's right -- you'll be using the cameras and edit systems in your freshman year. That means you'll get to learn from your mistakes and have plenty of opportunities to improve. You won't get that at many schools. The program mixes practical application and theory from the start.

The program covers a wide range of production experiences. Television shows and short films are always in production. They range from news, sports and music videos to comedies and dramas on film. Students are the driving force behind every phase of productions -- including writing, directing, camera, lighting, on-air, producing and editing
