Video Arts, Minor

The video arts minor is based on a multidisciplinary field focused on creative video expression and messaging. It weaves together collaborative frameworks, theories of social and cultural change, and video production (sound and image) alongside cinematic language (including documentary, imaginative, narrative, and experimental strategies). The scope of the video arts minor is a broader and more diverse tapestry than traditional video arts, and it reflects the dynamic evolution of video in multiple contexts, including the workplace. This minor enables students to explore contemporary, alternative, and other artistic means of video production in a variety of creative and technical contexts.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified. Any prerequisites should be taken before registering for 2000 level courses and above.
