Video Arts, Minor

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, video production (sound + image), alongside cinematic language (including documentary, imaginative, narrative, and experimental strategies). The scope of the Video Arts minor is broader and more diverse tapestry than traditional Video Art 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.
