The B.A. in Applied Theatre, Film, and Television is a new and innovative interdisciplinary program that draws on the strengths of longstanding curricula in the School of Liberal Arts, and more specifically, in the Departments of Communication Studies and English. What began as degrees in Telecommunications and Theatre Arts in the Department of Speech and Theatre, and a degree in Film Studies in the Department of English in 1969, have evolved into cutting edge programs that reflect current trends in these industries. We combine impactful curricula in Liberal Arts with exceptional and relevant coursework in the schools of Informatics, Herron, and Engineering and Technology, to offer a comprehensive grounding in the fields represented by this degree.
