Department of Cinematic Arts and New Media
The Department of Cinematic Arts and New Media offers a wide variety of programs to students passionate about change-making. At the heart of our teaching at Maharishi International University is the Transcendental Meditation® technique, a practice that gives students direct access to the source of creativity within, the wellspring of all human potential. All our courses encourage a holistic, sustainable routine founded in an authentic relationship with the Self.
The Cinematic Arts and New Media curriculum at MIU is intentionally structured in a flexible way to make it easy for students to work in-depth and to incubate their careers in the classroom. To find new ways in a world of film and media that continues to transform and evolve at an extraordinary speed in this time of history.
The curriculum also emphasizes gaining a deep understanding of storytelling in all forms of media. Human beings are hard-wired to understand the underlying patterns of life, and this perhaps accounts for our intrinsic attraction to stories and the ever-demanding need for storytelling.
Students in our program explore in detail the fundamental patterns, structures, and components of the story as powerful tools for engaging audiences in whatever media they choose to communicate with. Simultaneously, they engage in their own journey of awakening to greater creativity and intelligence through the daily practice of Transcendental Meditation.
