You have the vision to create something truly extraordinary, something that speaks to people on a deep level.

In our BA, you’ll learn how to create media worthy of your vision. We’ll teach you how to tap into yourself—the most extraordinary source of creativity there is—to communicate your message through film, music, photography and more.

Create something extraordinary

In our BA in Cinematic Arts and New Media, you’ll learn more than just the technical side of media production. We’ll teach you how to understand your unique creative process and create work that’s truly one-of-a-kind.

Our classes are project-based and focused on building your portfolio. By choosing the projects, classes, and topics you’re passionate about, you can create exactly the degree you need to pursue the career of your choice.

Full immersion in each project

You’ll study one full-time course per month, giving you time to dive deeply into each subject and skill without the stress of balancing multiple classes, assignments, and exams.

Our expert faculty will support your creative growth with individualized attention and constructive criticism, pushing you to new creative heights and teaching you how to innovate.

Connect to new inspiration

As a student, you’ll learn the Transcendental Meditation technique. This evidence-based technique reduces stress, enhances clear thinking, and heightens creativity.

It will also get you in touch with your deepest self, helping you to bring renewed creativity and fresh inspiration to every one of your projects.
