Faculty Research & Creative Projects

Faculty members pursue a wide variety of scholarly research projects, film and journalism work, and other creative endeavors, often working side-by-side with students. As teaching, research, and production assistants, our students have more opportunities to co-teach, co-publish, and co-create with the faculty than at programs in which undergraduates have to compete with graduate students for the faculty's attention. These experiences give our students an advantage in the job market and in getting into graduate schools.
