Theatre and Media Communications I

Course Description

Theatre and Media Communications I provides students with a rigorous and relevant experiential study of theatre along with video and audio design. Creation and analysis of student performances will be balanced with explorations into contemporary practices in digital media. Students will learn how to bridge traditional stagecraft with current technology applications to create new media such as animations, digital images, multimedia presentation, digital video, websites, and interactive performances. Furthermore, student work will culminate in a capstone project that investigates an issue relevant to the student and uses a digital stage to address a problem within the community or to effect a change. This project will afford students an opportunity to learn and practice creative research skills, develop a narrative, engage an audience, and connect an online community to their project.
