Media Arts Production

The Media Arts Production (MAP) program is new in 2020 and replaces the Integrated Media (IM) program.  MAP focuses on building the next generation of creative professionals for digital cinema and audio & video storytelling.  Students in this program can explore short and long-form narrative storytelling in digital cinema, episodic video content development, documentary filmmaking, podcasting production essentials, and post-production audio and advanced sound design for visual media.
