The Master of Arts in Communication, Concentration in Film, Video, and Digital Imaging has two tracks:
- Moving Image Production
- Moving Image Studies
The tracks in Moving Image Production provide students with practical experience in the production of moving-image works and emphasize the aesthetic and narrative dimensions of moving image works. Students in these tracks produce creative theses (videos/films, new media works or feature screenplays).
Those in the Moving Image Studies track write research theses examining problems in the theory and history of moving images. The M.A. track in Moving Image Studies can be pursued as an end in itself (for example, working educators in English and the humanities who find themselves increasingly working with moving images in their disciplines), but is often the stepping stone for pursuing the doctorate.
