In an ever-shifting media landscape, St. Lawrence’s new digital media and film major will empower students to think critically and creatively about the content they consume and produce. After four years of interdisciplinary classes and opportunities to gain real-world experience, students will be well-positioned to confidently take on careers in journalism, videography, graphic design, film, and more. Program co-chairs Sarah Knobel, associate professor of art and art history, and Brook Henkel, associate professor of German and film studies, shared what students can expect from this innovative new major.
St. Lawrence University has created a new bachelor's degree program in digital media and film, preparing graduates for careers in the media industry through digital content creation, new media, and a commitment to social justice.
St. Lawrence has surpassed its previous admissions application record for fall 2022 following several successful initiatives focused on reducing barriers to college entry and reimagining a liberal arts education in the 21st century.
