Welcome to the Department of Television, Film & Media.

It is the mission of the Television, Film & Media (TVF) Department to offer its students an excellent education in media studies.

We seek to train students as competent and creative producers of media, and we seek to instill concepts and critical perspectives that will serve students not only as makers of media but also in their life-long relationship to media as citizens, consumers, and as creators.

The TVF Department recognizes two necessary and complementary paths to achieve this mission.  First, students must learn traditional and contemporary media production techniques and practices; second, students must pose and address critical questions about the artistic, social, cultural, political and historical interactions of media, emerging technologies, and society.
