Graduate Program

Whether you want to transition to the classroom or work in the media industry, our graduate program provides the educational background to help you succeed. Our graduate courses are generally small, providing opportunities for extensive interaction and discussion among a cohort of graduate students and knowledgeable faculty.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts offers a versatile Master of Arts degree that combines advanced theoretical and applied coursework. We offer four concentrations to meet your educational needs and career goals:

Electronic Media Studies
Our most general area of concentration, which allows students to choose from a variety of coursework, including production, scriptwriting, management, and film studies.

Electronic Media Management*
This concentration is focused on leadership and entrepreneurship in the media industry.
*Offered face-to-face or online synchronous through HyFlex instruction beginning in the 2022-23 academic year.

Electronic Media Production
Students will develop their video and/or audio production skills in this concentration, while also learning how to conduct original research.

Film Theory and Criticism
This is not a production-centered concentration. It focuses on film history, genre, criticism, and theory.
