Department of Visual & Media Arts Undergraduate Programs
Compelling art can only come from a complete artist. Emerson’s Visual and Media Arts undergraduate programs combine foundational liberal arts courses with hands-on immersion in a range of media forms and production techniques.

We offer two Media Production degrees. The Bachelor of Arts in Media Production program features an integrated approach to media production while offering students the ability to engage in greater depth of study in specializations that include:
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Production program offers a more concentrated production curriculum that culminates in a capstone project in your chosen medium that features more intensive faculty mentoring and collaboration opportunities.
The department also offers a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies program for students who are interested in pursuing careers in media criticism, publishing, and industry research. The program provides you with a solid backing in the history, trends, and techniques of the visual and media arts.
