Theatre, Film & Video Production (TFVP) Department

College of Arts & Media

The Theatre, Film, and Video Production Department offers a unique opportunity to study, learn and practice in the area of Film and Television. 

Unlike the typical film school our curriculum is distinctive in that we don’t merely focus on film, we likewise explore a rigorous involvement with television production. Two-thirds of the jobs within the film/television industry are generated via television platforms (network, premium cable, basic cable, and the Internet). Our students are exposed to all of these many models of production in real-world training that better prepares them for the rapidly evolving media industry. Our faculty are all working professionals who draw upon their expertise to provide valuable concepts and techniques in all their classes. Film/Television majors leave our program with a large portfolio of writing and production projects, fully prepared to begin their careers. Our Theatre emphasis likewise embraces a long-standing tradition of providing an environment where students can learn and grow. Theatre majors have diverse opportunities to participate in all aspects of production. They engage in course work and production opportunities as directors, designers, lighting designers, sound designers, actors, and technical directors. They benefit by working closely with a diverse and experienced faculty that provide personal instruction and supervision within our state-of-the-art  theatre facilities

Film…Television…Theatre…our training program offers skill sets across this spectrum.  One department, two programs…like no other.
