Contemporary skills. How we understand the world is shaped by the images and sounds we see on screens. At Evergreen, we know that through thoughtful critique and analysis of media, we can find answers to complex questions both societal and personal. By choosing to use the powerful tools of media production, you’ll ignite the spark that illuminates the human experience.

The history of you. As a student in Evergreen’s Film, Video, and Production field, you’ll engage deeply in issues of race, class, and gender. You’ll develop critical awareness through screenings, reading, writing, and discussion. In addition, you’ll confront and embrace your own personal narrative as you learn the history, theory, and practice of film, animation, and sound design.

Getting started and going beyond. Our courses and programs offer many entry points for you to develop your critical skills and talents. You will have access to interdisciplinary programs that will allow you to discover your interests and academic skills in the practice of media. Advanced programs, senior projects, and media internships are also offered for upper division students.

How to Choose Your Path

You’ll choose what you study to earn a Bachelor’s degree that’s meaningful to you. Some students decide their programs as they go, while others chart their course in advance.

Aim for both breadth and depth; explore fields that may be related or that may seem very distant. You'll be surprised at what you discover.

If you're new to college, look for programs where you can gain a foundation, build key skills, and broaden your knowledge (FR only, FR-SO, or FR-SR).

If you already have a foundation in this field, look for programs with intermediate or advanced material (SO-SR, JR-SR, or FR-SR). These programs may include community-based learning and in-depth research. Some of these programs have specific prerequisites; check the description for details.

Talk to an academic advisor to get help figuring out what coursework is best for you.
