Film and Television Studies
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Film and television are important and rapidly evolving art forms. We offer deep faculty expertise in these mediums, and skillfully integrate their perspectives into a modern humanities and arts education. You'll get deep exposure to the aesthetic, technological, historical, theoretical and cultural aspects of film and television. Basic introductory courses expose students to concepts needed to begin studying film and television as well as its early historical and theoretical concerns. The intermediate level courses concentrate on contemporary issues, genre history, and theory as well as film and video production. And the advanced level seminars attempt to bring together all the student’s knowledge through a course that explores the depths of one topic (such as studying the works of one director, global and European cinema, women in film, race and television, or violence in film). Located in the English Department, Film and Television Studies (FTS) offers a major and minor. FTS courses have all been designed to explore aesthetic, technological, historical, theoretical, and cultural developments. FTS students also study film and television as an international art form.

Film
Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, VT
The MFA in Film at Vermont College of Fine Arts allows filmmakers, screenwriters, and media artists to earn a 60-credit MFA degree over two years, providing a framework for expert mentorship, innovative production, and critical assessment. Students can earn an affordable MFA while expanding their bodies of work and maintaining continuity in their professional and personal lives. Our program’s six-month semesters operate year-round, consecutively, and begin with weeklong residencies on VCFA’s Montpelier campus in April and October. Over the course of two years, our four semesters each begin with a residency; the last semester ends with a final fifth residency, when Thesis Projects are presented for review. Students may begin their studies in April or October. Campus residencies offer students an intensive week of workshops, lectures, critiques, screenings, and dialogue. Students are also paired with faculty advisors for the upcoming semester during residency. They work closely with advisors to develop a customized Study Plan for the next six months that helps to direct and inspire their upcoming work. They set goals and milestones that are both ambitious and achievable for the proposed semester’s work, addressing relevant research, development, and production requirements. Following residency, students return home where they devote a minimum of 25 hours per week to their MFA projects. At monthly intervals, students send work to their faculty advisors and then meet (via Skype, phone, or in-person) to discuss in depth. Our program emphasizes concrete deliverables for each monthly deadline, in the form of works-in-progress and/or finished pieces. A student’s work will also involve readings, film viewings, assignments, and other forms of research and preparation. Student projects vary in length and genre, and our faculty encourage deep exploration and experimentation regarding form and content. Students each have a personal Project Site that only the MFA in Film program can access. At the midterm and end of each semester, students upload select works-in-progress and finished pieces to their Project Sites, so that others in the program may see what they are working on and share feedback. At midterm and end-of-semester, faculty write student evaluations (in lieu of grades), and students write self-assessments and faculty evaluations. At the second and subsequent residencies, students present work at critques with faculty members and students, meet with a new faculty advisor, and design a new Study Plan for the upcoming semester. During the third residency, at the completion of the first year of study, students present Thesis Proposals to faculty for review. The Thesis Project is the main focus of a student’s second year at VCFA, and in some cases, is the main focus of their two years. Each student’s trajectory—the number, scope, and types of projects they complete—is different. Each Thesis, reviewed in the fifth and final residency, is evaluated with respect to a student’s achievement and growth throughout their two years We launched the MFA in Film Program in 2013, in response to a changing film industry and the need for artists to revolutionize the ways motion pictures are created and experienced. VCFA’s MFA in Film program is an incubator for ideas, action and interaction: Ideas are exchanged, discussed, exhibited, and reviewed among students, faculty, and visiting artists during weeklong residencies in Montpelier, VT. Each six-month semester begins with a residency featuring lectures, workshops, screening and discussions, critiques, meetings, and social events from morning through night. For the rest of the semester, students rigorously develop their ideas with feedback from a faculty advisor, incorporating readings, viewings, and assignments relevant to their project goals. Action refers to our students’ constant development and creation of new projects. Students’ monthly deliverables to their faculty advisors are concrete milestones for this process. Throughout their two years, students are actively and dynamically expanding their bodies of work and their creative resources, with projects that are typically live action films, animations, transmedia, or screenplays. A student may focus on one large-scale project for their entire two years in the program, or create multiple projects, in a series or concurrently. A designated thesis project is the focus of the second year of study. Interactions happen when dozens of students, faculty, and visiting artists come together for on-campus residencies. Regular one-on-one interactions take place throughout the rest of the semester between students and their faculty mentors. Faculty provide a deep level of individual attention that spurs intensive development. At midterm, students also upload work to their personal Project Sites to share their progress with others in the program. Once connected through VCFA, our students exchange ideas and feedback, and sometimes collaborate and travel to work on each other’s projects. MFA in Film students can also find collaborators among VCFA’s MFA students in Music Composition, Graphic Design, Visual Art, Writing, Writing for Children & Young Adults, and Writing & Publishing.

Media Studies and Digital Arts
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
As a Media Studies student, you will learn to write quickly, accurately and under deadline pressure. You will learn to conduct research using traditional and electronic sources. You will acquire a deep understanding of the ethical and legal responsibilities associated with being a communicator - whether in the newsroom or the marketplace. And you will develop a mastery of current technologies, including multimedia, digital photography, digital video and digital audio and social media. There are two versions of the Media Studies & Digital Arts major: one with a journalism concentration, and one without. Both versions combine the arts and sciences with hands-on communication skills, critical to our students as they learn to become effective communicators in our Information Age. Working in collaboration with media professionals at media organizations and in corporate and non-profit, media students put theory into practice by producing media in a professional work environment. Possible activites include producing and distributing media, i.e. websites, articles, films, brochures etc. planning and staging media events; researching and evaluating public relations campaigns; and optimization studies. The internship gives students a practical context in which to examine and interpret issues and concepts they have studied in their Media Studies classroom courses. Some of our graduates are employed in newsrooms all over New England and beyond. Many other graduates are working in web design, film production, photojournalism, advertising, public relations, marketing, and politics (one of our graduates is the press secretary for the Senate Judiciary Committee). Some are doing jobs that weren’t even invented a decade ago, like Director of Social Media. Others have gone on to a range of graduate programs: law school, media studies, American studies, and other fields.
