Mission Statement

Our mission is to foster strong reading, writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills in our students. We also seek to equip students with the skills, confidence and competencies to read and analyze feature films, documentaries and film texts closely, and interpret their various meanings and messages-social, economic, political, historical, anthropological, philosophical, psychological, and so forth.

Major Goals of the Department of Film & Interactive Media are that:

  1. Students will fulfill production roles in films and videos.
  2. Students will produce and direct film/video productions.
  3. Students will write screenplays.
  4. Students will use technical (lighting, sound, camera, editing) equipment in film/video productions.
  5. Students will articulate a global understanding of the history, theory and criticism of film.
  6. Students will develop their individual sense of cinematic style and approach.
  7. Students will gain proficiency in the necessary skills and concepts to matriculate into graduate school, production jobs, or additional professional training.
