Department of Electronic Media & Film

Find your voice, develop your storytelling talents and pursue your vision through the department’s undergraduate programs.

The department engages a new generation of enthusiastic artists, entertainers and communicators to share media in bold and unconventional new ways. We will inspire you, foster your talents and skills in a nurturing environment and empower you to succeed in an evolving digital world. Expand your knowledge and experiences, shape how you express your ideas and heighten your understanding and awareness of the media and its powerful traditions and exciting future.

Explore the potential of film, video, audio and new media and discover the link between liberal arts and professional training – between theory and practice. Build communities and create partnerships that encourage artistic, social and cultural diversity.

You will become fully aware of the transformative power of the media and your role in responsible civic engagement. You will get first-hand experience through the department-operated HD television studio, an HD cinema and a media laboratory with cameras, lighting and audio equipment, studios, editing/post-production suites and radio production rooms.
