Film & Animation Student Success Stories
Virtual learning is nothing new to kids who have been in school through the pandemic, and new technology in the classroom will stick around long after students fully return. MSUM student Aubrie Vivant knew this when planning her web series, 'Space Chase.'
Students in the COMM 440 class produced and directed the documentary, "MSUM: Under the Mask," which follows students, faculty and staff at MSUM during the pandemic.
It is with great pride and excitement that President Anne Blackhurst congratulates the most recent Fulbright Scholar at MSUM: Dr. Anthony (Tony) Adah, professor of film studies.
Enhance your education outside the classroom through a variety of experiential learning opportunities designed specifically for Film Studies majors.
