Digital Video and Cinema

This professionally oriented program helps students develop practical skills in the converging media of high definition television and film, while instilling a critical understanding of how those media are used to tell stories, convey information and persuade audiences. The program offers preparation in writing, production and post-production within an ongoing examination of how new digital technologies are reshaping the commercial and artistic potential of visual media. Digital Video and Cinema students are encouraged to complement their concentration with a minor in film studies, creative writing, art or theatre.

Requirements and Checksheets
Due to revisions to the SMAD curriculum, students may have different requirements based on when they were admitted to the major. To keep track of the different requirements, SMAD employs different "Major Requirements" and "Checksheets" that are color coded blue, salmon, yellow or green. Please use the materials below that correspond to the time you were notified of admission to SMAD. If you have questions, contact your adviser.
