Writing, Film & Media Arts is home to storytelling on the page, the stage, and the screen. We believe that process is equal to product and that a multi-disciplinary arts experience prepares students to be versatile creators. Our program offers a possibility-rich environment where students can develop an original voice and vision. Through studio courses, practicums, and master classes with notable guest artists, students invest in the process of creating dynamic stories with words and images. In all areas of study, supportive faculty help students cultivate the skills and habits necessary to approach their college pursuits with a creative and technical edge.
