In Screen Arts & Cultures, we create and study the moving image as seen on multiple screens—on the big screens of movie palaces, the cineplex, the art house and the film festival; on small screens ensconced in mammoth fifties consoles and those of giant flat-screened visual glory.  With a strong undergraduate curriculum of production and studies, a burgeoning doctoral program in screen arts and a faculty of award-winning scholars and media makers, Screen Arts & Cultures offers a vibrant intellectual and artistic community here in the Midwest/Great Lakes region.

Be a Victor

We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Screen Arts and Cultures needs you—because the world needs Victors.
