The Department of Communication awards a Bachelor of Arts in film and video, a Master of Arts in film, video and digital imaging, and a Ph.D. in moving image studies.

The Bachelor of Arts in film and video program allows students to take courses from areas of film history, screenwriting, and critical studies.

Other electives can be chosen in lighting, animation, acting and computer graphics.

The Master of Arts in film, video and digital imaging offers tracks in production, screenwriting and moving image studies.

The final year culminates in a video or film project, which students defend before a thesis committee. Those in moving image studies focus on film theory, textual analysis, new media and television studies, and screenwriting students will learn about writing adaptations and short screenplays as well as study digital editing and film theory.
