RTF Program (overview of entire curriculum): rtf-program-guide-2023.pdf

The RTF Department offers students courses in radio, television and film production, as well as courses in the history, business, and aesthetics of the media. Students can select one of two tracks within the program: The Traditional Production Emphasis, which is based in the department's, state-of-the-art digital production facilities, and a new Critical Studies Track. This track prepares the student for media studies in graduate school and/or careers in education and literary criticism. Students who complete both of these programs posses a broad-based liberal arts background and a strong preparation for either the media production industry or advanced media studies.

For any questions about required courses and the different options available, please contact your faculty advisor or refer to the latest version of the Undergraduate Catalog.
