Film and Media Arts Minor
The program for the study of Film & Media Arts (FMA) offers a variety of subjects for students interested in video and media production technologies, including live event and broadcast studio production. This program combines both production and film studies for a unique offering at UAH where students can get a minor in FMA and ultimately certification in a variety of production roles. It is flexible in its structure, allowing students to engage in courses that combine skills and interests, such as sound and music technology or animation, with video production remaining the core focus.
