The Film and Digital Media Major, leading to a B.A. degree, integrates critical, historical, theoretical and practical components, enabling students to develop expertise in the understanding and use of the moving image for artistic, social and pre-professional purposes. Students will develop a critical attitude toward and awareness of moving image media through theoretical studies, critical analysis and historical and cross-cultural examination. Students in the production concentration will be expected to demonstrate technical proficiency and a creative voice in film, video and digital media as an integral part of the requirements of the major.

The objectives of our program are threefold:

1) to provide students with the theoretical concepts and historical knowledge necessary to conduct informed critical analyses of films and digital media, and to deconstruct their own production work;

2) to encourage creative production in film, video and digital media and to provide students with essential and up-to-date technical knowledge and practical skills in production;

3) to provide a course of study that develops an understanding of film and digital media production as essential tools of communication in the twenty-first century.

Over the years, our graduates have established careers as professionals in the fields of film, video, television and digital media, working professionally as writers, cinematographers, directors, editors, script analysts, television producers, programmers and executives. Some of our graduates have earned recognition through awards and have achieved substantial professional stature. Graduates from the Film and Digital Media program also have a strong track record of gaining admission to the top graduate schools in the field, including UCLA, NYU, Columbia, San Francisco State, The American Film Institute, Cal Arts, USC and UCSD.
