Film and Electronic Arts is an innovative program that emphasizes both theory and practice. Focusing upon the integration of media and the arts, as well as upon the impact of technology on our culture, the curriculum is designed to provide technical skills while developing a foundation in the arts and the humanities.
The faculty provides a diversity of expertise and interests which cross traditional media lines while integrating film, audio, and video, and digital production modes. Theory and aesthetics are taught as an integral part of the development of production skills.
Incoming freshmen are admitted as “Pre-Film and Electronic Arts” (i.e., Pre-FEA Theory and Practice of Cinema or Pre-FEA Narrative Production).
