About this guide
This is your library research guide for Television, Film, & Media Studies. The Television, Film & Media Studies (TVF) department at Cal State LA offers an undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Television, Film and Media Studies, with options in Telecommunications & Film and Broadcast Journalism. They also offer both M.A. and M.F.A. degree programs. The program seeks to train students as competent and creative producers of media, and to instill concepts and critical perspectives that will serve students not only as makers of media but also in their life-long relationship to media as citizens, consumers, and as creators. The TVF program recognizes two necessary and complementary paths to achieve this mission. First, students must learn traditional and contemporary media production techniques and practices; second, students must pose and address critical questions about the artistic, social, cultural, political and historical interactions of media, emerging technologies, and society.
