Moving-Image Production Major


Moving-Image Production (MIP) is a new BA program in live-action and animated filmmaking, which launched in autumn of 2017. Administered by the Film Studies Program, MIP is an interdisciplinary major that combines teaching and research expertise from our partners in Art, Dance, Design and Theatre, as well as the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD).



Students majoring in MIP explore one of the most popular and vibrant contemporary art forms. The major focuses on developing students’ creative voices as they produce moving-image works across four areas: animation, experimental, documentary, and narrative. In addition, through the required Film Studies Minor, students engage with the entire culture of cinema, learning to think historically, theoretically, and critically about film.
