  • The Media Arts Department is proud to announce the Fall 2015 launch IMAP, the first MFA in Media Production offered by a New Jersey public university.

    Media Art CenterThe Media Arts Department offers a major program of study in media that provides students with rigorous foundations in media theory and production. The 51-credit major includes thirty-three (33) required core credits that provide instruction and practical experience in multi-media, audio, video, and film production as well as studies in writing, cinema studies and media theory. Eighteen (18) additional credits allow students to pursue area of concentrations through upper-level electives, and a required Cooperative Education internship gives students 'real-life' work placement experience. A Departmental goal for our students is to encourage intelligent judgements, creative and socially responsible pursuits, and to enable students to live enriched aesthetic lives in the careers of their choice. The major in media prepares students as independent producers and encourages them to develop fluency and flexibility in all aspects of media theory and production.

    The Media Arts Department is accredited by NASAD - the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. The Media Arts Department Graduate Committee is currently developing a Master of Fine Arts program in media production.
