Visual Arts, Cinematic Arts Concentration, B.A.


The cinematic arts concentration provides students with the conceptual framework, historical context and technical skills necessary for the production of narrative, documentary or experimental projects in a fine-arts environment. In this emphasis, Cinema is treated as an artistic media - ideas are considered as important as technique. As an integrated production-based curriculum, the concentration provides study of film/video history, criticism & theory and the scriptwriting-proposal process, in tandem with a range of digital production and post-production tools that form the foundation for personal creative student work.

Foundation Program


The Foundation Program provides a unified and dynamic experience designed to build a durable framework for all areas of study in Visual Arts. This program is founded upon intensive lecture, studio, and lab investigation of techniques, methods, and concepts.

The curriculum broadens and expands a student's formal creative design vocabulary, while introducing new ways of thinking about images, time, space, and audience. This program encourages students to think analytically and to use their imagination to develop an awareness of the role of artists in our culture.

Students with a major in Visual Arts and a studio concentration (Animation, Cinematic Arts, Graphic Design, Photography, Print Media) are required to take the following courses:
