MDIA 400: Media Arts Core I

This senior studio course acts as a platform for the critical and artistic development of Film + Screen Arts, and New Media + Sound Arts students, to develop and produce their degree projects, which reflect a culmination of what students have learned in their years of study in media. Students will develop their degree project through proposal, pre-production and production phases with the medium, form and content of their choosing. A high level of self-directed activity is expected, along with active participation in peer group and class discussion, presentations and critiques. The degree projects will be developed and critiqued on an aesthetic, technical and critical level. Peer group support is key to this development, along with individual meetings with instructors and presentations of the work to the class. Individual students are expected to create a degree project as well as assist their fellow students by taking on a skilled craft role on their productions. This course brings together the FMSA and NMSA graduating students in order to broaden their level of discourse, enhance opportunities for collaboration, and synthesize the connection between these two majors.

This course is subject to priority rules; see here.
