Many faculty members also work with national and international organizations dealing with media education and film preservation.
Because of the quality instruction our students receive, they’ve earned grants for rigorous research projects and had productions screened at domestic and international festivals.
We also provide opportunities to study abroad in London and have an established student/faculty exchange program with the University of Sunderland (United Kingdom). More information about our Radio, Television and Film program and the department is at our website.
