Cinematic Arts and New Media Department

Discover Your inner source of creativity

In Maharishi International University’s holistic Cinematic Arts and New Media programs – which include daily meditation, project-based learning, a healthy lifestyle, practical courses, and a supportive community – you’ll connect to the most powerful source of inspiration and creativity: yourself.

Start Your career before you graduate

Our Cinematic Arts and New Media department acknowledges the importance of both the creative and the professional — and we’ll teach you both.

As a student, you’ll learn the latest in media, cinematic arts, and leadership skills so that you can launch a successful career in video, web design, graphic design, music/audio, or professional writing.

You’ll take project-based courses that help you create an impressive portfolio by the time you finish your degree and pursue internships that provide you with practical, real-world experience.

Consciousness-Based learning

Our system of Consciousness-Based Education combines practical, hands-on courses with the personal growth benefits of the Transcendental Meditation® technique, which is practiced daily by all of our students and faculty.

After experiencing our other unique features, such as a one full-time class per month, vegetarian meals and a healthy routine, you’ll find yourself learning in a brand new way.

Expert faculty

Each Cinematic Arts and New Media class is taught by experienced, expert, engaged faculty.

Our small student-to-faculty ratio means that you’ll get personalized attention and mentorship from experts in your chosen field.

Creative community

Maharishi International University is located in Fairfield, Iowa – a welcoming, creative community with ties to the film, television, media, music, and arts industries.

You’ll be connected to community resources and experts who will work with you to make your project ideas into reality.
