MAPP is a distinctive Bachelor of Arts degree specialization co-coordinated by the Department of Film & Media and the Dan School of Drama & Music. This program is ideal for students interested in the creative and production aspects of Film, Drama and Music, paying particular attention to the cross-disciplinary opportunities that are becoming increasingly important in today’s digital age. MAPP focuses on all aspects of mediatization from moving image and sound production to the intermedial integration of “media” into live arts.
Students in this program explore the creation and transmission of diverse art projects and the role of new digital technologies in preparing and presenting that work. The performance aspects go well beyond the traditional stage and film traditions often addressing a wider range of embodied action and dramatic storytelling. Students in MAPP have enhanced opportunities to work in both live and recorded presentations that incorporate music, sound, and performance studies.
