A Departmental goal for our students is to encourage intelligent judgements, creative and socially responsible pursuits, and to enable students to live enriched aesthetic lives in the careers of their choice. The major in media prepares students as independent producers and encourages them to develop fluency and flexibility in all aspect of media production.
