Film & New Media Studies Graduate Certificate

Department: Dean’s Office

Moving‐image media are transforming the way we work and play and how we relate to colleagues, friends, and family members. Film & New Media Studies is designed to teach students how to think actively, critically, and creatively, about the art of the moving image. To this end, it surveys significant examples of moving‐image culture, including films from Hollywood and other global industries: experiments in documentary and art cinema; and works from television, digital video and the Internet. For some students, this Certificate complements their aspirations to produce moving–image works. For others, it means better understanding their own mediated environments.
