Introduction to Film & TV

Film and television courses prepare you to engage with today’s ubiquitous media environment. That might mean anything from pursuing a career in movie or tv production, to watching a film with your critical eye.

TV and film can reflect and affect people’s daily lives, dreams, and aspirations. Being able to decode the language of the screen unlocks the politics, economics, and cultures of both the maker and their audience.
