As a diverse community of media professionals, artists and scholars, we are united by our understanding of the relevance of media in an increasingly inter-connected world, and by our commitment to prepare students to meet the future challenges of an expanding media environment as informed, culturally aware critical thinkers and professionally trained creative artists.

We challenge our students to develop their own voices as tomorrow’s leaders through a hands-on exploration of motion picture, photography, theatre and new media production.

We are committed to the principles that teaching, learning, and creating media and theatre are group activities that require teamwork and mutual respect and that these values shape our interactions as an academic community.

As artists, scholars and media professionals living and working in the unique environment of Montana, we strive to enrich our local, national and international communities through the dissemination of our creative activities and scholarship.
