Department & Faculty Information  

Creative Video (Certificate & Minor) 27-31 units


Program Description

The field of video production, for television as well as for corporate, educational, and Web uses, is expanding rapidly and there is much demand by employers for people with related skills. Other programs and courses at Cal State East Bay feature documentary and news production (COMM); stage acting (THEA); fiction writing for the printed page and the Internet (ENGL). This program introduces a new dimension to each of these areas: narrative or creative video. The new minor enables these departments to collaborate and actually create several videos of broadcast quality each year, giving students the opportunity to learn skills by practicing them.
