In Screen Arts & Cultures, we create and study the moving image as seen on multiple screens—on the big screens of movie palaces, the cineplex, the art house and the film festival; on small screens ensconced in mammoth fifties consoles and those of giant flat-screened visual glory.  With a strong undergraduate curriculum of production and studies, a burgeoning doctoral program in screen arts and a faculty of award-winning scholars and media makers, Screen Arts & Cultures offers a vibrant intellectual and artistic community here in the Midwest/Great Lakes region.

Due to budget constraints, SAC will be unable to provide student advising during the spring/summer terms. Advising appointments will resume at the beginning of Fall Term, 9-15-15.
