The Video minor is an 18-hour program.

The video curriculum is designed to meet the diverse interests of the students investigating the contemporary field of Fine Arts in Video. In the introductory course, students will explore video recording devices and editing software associated with video as art. The foundation of the creative projects will be based around the visual components and structure of the moving image. 

Students will also learn about the theory and practice of time-based media art exploring formal elements of technology, circulation, and context. Students will work across social media, video, performance, sound, and installation, and explore site-specific projection, public screenings, and collaborative projects.
