This program focuses on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in the fields of video, audio, cinema, radio, television, music and live event production. The curriculum integrates a wide range of pre-production, production, and post-production experiences with the insights offered by media aesthetics, history, theory, and analysis. A heavy emphasis will be placed on the creation of content and messages that are compelling, effective and of substantial quality. Graduates will find a wide range of professional employment, both in Michigan and nationally, including positions in the motion picture film, cable and broadcasting industries, at recording studios and concert venues, for streaming media websites, at advertising agencies and post-production houses, or with corporations, school systems, churches, and non-profits.
