Department of Theater, Film, and Media Studies


Theater, Film, and Media Studies houses a variety of opportunities for students to study and practice the arts of stage and screen.

The field of theater, film, and media combines studies in history, theory, and critical analysis with practical experiences in production techniques and creativity. Its scope includes diverse representations in dynamic time and space, whether on stage, in the dance studio, or on screen. Among its shared subjects are visual culture, performance studies, and techniques for directing, designing, writing, and performing for stage and screen media.

Students may focus their studies in theater or in film and media, as a major or as a minor. Both focuses are fundamentally collaborative and multidisciplinary; they thrive in a liberal arts context that promotes breadth and integration of learning.
