Department of Visual & Media Arts

Program Requirements for Students Who Entered Before Fall 2014

Students who matriculated before the Fall of 2014 will continue their courses of study with our previous offering of 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:
