Academic Group

In recent years, the Center has become home to the Film, Television & Media Arts major within the Department of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA). Utilizing the two television studios and the film and video equipment, the Center is the hub where students learn the art and craft of film, television and radio production.

All classes in the program are taught in the Media Center's cutting edge facilities. Students in the television track learn both studio and remote production skills, and have the opportunity to air their programs on a regular nightly schedule on Fairfield's student broadcast TV station, stagstv.com.

Film students use sound stages, editing facilities and remote equipment packages to produce films which are screened at our annual Cinefest Fairfield.

In all that the Media Center does, we strive to produce, aid and encourage creation of the beautiful and the true. We are a family and are here to serve the whole University community.
