Tests of English Language Skills
If you are not studying full-time for one year at a university in a country where English is the language of instruction, you must take a test of English language skills.
The Difference Between Media and Films
The difference is reflected and constructed in various media practices. The course will examine a wide range of forms and genres, including anthropology, science fiction, crime narratives, documentary film, political drama, and animated shorts. Two production-course limitations.
The Media Program at the University Art Gallery in Mandeville
The department gives students the opportunity to view and exhibit art in campus galleries. The University Art Gallery in Mandeville and the Visual Arts Gallery in SME are both open to the public. The Mandeville Adam D. Kamil Gallery is directed by visual arts undergraduate students.
The visual arts facility has a gallery and performance space. The media honors program will help students with their portfolios. The honors thesis project is a sequence of individual studies that runs the length of an academic year to give enough time for ideas to develop and critically aware work to be produced.
Students can work with different faculty advisers each term or they can engage a single adviser. To be eligible for the honors thesis sequence, students must have a 3.5 grade point average in their major and have approval from all their advisers. The last quarter of the junior year or the senior year is when qualified students can begin their sequence.
The major in art history, theory, and criticism is designed for students who want a broad based education in the humanities and for those who want to pursue a career in art. The foundation for study is the ability to speak the languages of artistic expression. Students learn to treat works of art as representations of human belief, thought, and experience in Western and non-Western societies through the study of art history.
The theoretical approaches used to understand artistic achievement are reviewed in courses in criticism. The program combines art historical and critical study to give students a framework for informed judgement on the important issues of meaning and expression in contemporary society. The media program is designed for students who want to change the way they view things.

It takes fifteen years to get a piece of art. For Joan Jacobs and her husband, patience was more than just a virtue.
The choice of the visual healing experience
Patients are given a tablets by their bed that gives them the power to choose where they want to be healed. Desert, ocean, flowers or forest are the choices for their own visual healing experience.
The MSA Library Walk: A Day of Action for Public Education
The apartheid wall along the library walk was displayed by the MSA, which was able to express their opinions on the issue. The organizers of the event were able to fully express their views, even if they felt differently about the region and conflict. Students were able to stop and look at the wall from the display set up in the heavy traffic area.
fliers were handed out to spread the message of the weeklong event and many speakers would be presenting their views about Palestine and Israel. The call for a strike and day of action in defense of public education was made on March 4th, 2010. Education cuts are attacks on all of us in working class communities and communities of color.
