Overview

Loyola's interdisciplinary, film and digital media major focuses on the critical analysis, production, and use of film and digital media. Students explore the migration of communication and entertainment media across platforms, from film screens, to mobile devices, to video games.

Located in one of the largest media markets in the world, Loyola’s Film and Digital Media program offers students the opportunity to gain real-world experience working with a variety of filmmakers, digital media producers, and scholars. Screenwriters, new-media artists, and other professionals in the industry, join with the full-time faculty to help students learn the latest techniques and theory. Students are also within easy reach of media companies for internships and hands-on experience and ultimately job opportunities.

Students in the bachelor’s in film and digital media program choose from one of three major concentrations:

  • International Film Studies prepares students for further work or study in media criticism, history, theory, curation, and related media professions
  • Film and Media Production provides students with the conceptual and practical skills for working in film, digital video, and new-media production
  • Digital Media which gives students experience in the production and critical study of multiple new media modes, including web design, social media, information management, game design, or technology development.

In keeping with Loyola's Jesuit, Catholic values of social justice and ethical practices, the film and digital media program offers opportunities for community outreach and service-learning, and emphasizes both the practice and theory of film and digital media, striving to create thoughtful practitioners and media critics.
