Ithaca College (Roy H. Park School of Communications)

In Ithaca's Roy H. Park School of Communications you'll explore the myriad ways people and organizations "talk" to one another: not only through words, but also through image, sound, and design. Additionally, you'll learn to analyze the mass media with a critical eye and to develop the skills to express your own ideas clearly and forcefully.

If you're interested in the creative possibilities of the visual media, consider entering our bachelor of fine arts program. The film, photography, and visual arts program differs from the B.S. program in cinema and photography by adding coursework in the other fine arts. Rather than focusing on one specific medium, you'll be encouraged to explore the whole spectrum of visual culture.

Beginning in your freshman year, you'll take many of the same classes in photography and film production as cinema and photography majors (bring your own 35 mm SLR camera and light meter), and you'll spend as much time in the darkroom or at an editing station as they do. But you'll also venture into the television studios for video production classes and trek over to the art studio for lessons in drawing.

You will receive a thorough grounding in required courses in theory, history, and criticism. To round out your educational experience, you will choose from elective courses in theater, music, and writing. But the real emphasis is on producing images -- photographs, paintings, films, videos, and drawings.

The B.F.A. program will test your ability to juggle projects, stay on deadline, and maintain your creative energies. The goal is to provide you with the skills and background you need to develop and express your artistic vision.
