Become a Video Storyteller
The video production emphasis prepares students for the real world. Twenty-first-century media is evolving quickly, and video is central to many communication strategies.

Students will be able to:

  • Analyze the creation of video content in professional and ethical ways.
  • Create news pieces, advertisements, factual documentaries, and short narrative films.
  • Plan and create their video products in answer to specific industry requirements.

Video production is a highly competitive field, but there have never been more opportunities for a video to bring solutions to the industry. Students build hard technical skills and understand professional processes and expectations. Simultaneously, they develop soft marketable skills as creative collaborators.
"It feels great to see all the things I’ve learned really pay off. Knowing my worth and the worth of my product and how to interact with clients is invaluable right now. The video emphasis degree has made me ten times more employable!"
