About the Digital Media — Video and Film Program
Our film and video students are working together with our acting students to create award-winning video and films for contests, clients and festivals. The 62-hour bachelor of science in digital media — video and film combines the best of both worlds, applying film and aesthetic theory to hands-on creative projects.
A unique feature of this program is a two-semester in-house agency experience where students gain practical experience working on film projects. A senior capstone course prepares students for a career search and requires the completion of a professional portfolio.
Our mission in the Department of Communication and Media is to prepare credible, creative Christian professionals for a world where the mastery of communication skills and technologies is essential. We accomplish our mission by helping students produce, publish and perform original work that is both ethical and effective.
Why should you choose SAU’s video and film program?
The study of communication at Spring Arbor University is a hands-on experience, with a foundation in classical and Christian perspectives. All students complete a core sequence that promotes a thoughtful and ethical understanding of communication principles and best practices.
Throughout the program you will apply these principles. We offer extracurricular opportunities in writing, acting, broadcasting, designing, producing, directing and researching in addition to practical hands-on experiences in the classroom. Students win awards in state and national competitions, have their films screened at festivals, and engage in meaningful internships.
