Media Arts

Fine Arts


Experimentation is a key word in Tyndale’s four-year BA Media Arts - Fine Arts program. Courses in Animation, Motion Graphics and VFX Storytelling, and The History and Practice of Experimental Media take students through a variety of different techniques and approaches to creating animations, graphics, film and media, and allow you to explore various approaches to media art and even push new boundaries of your own. Even a survey course like Documentary Filmmaking, which looks at ethical approaches to documenting stories, among other topics, gives you the opportunity to make a documentary of your own.

Students work with charities and non-profit organizations in their third and fourth years, creating media for clients, learning professional etiquette, and making contacts for employment after graduation.

Tyndale's Media Arts programs are designed to enable students to develop as meaningful creative storytellers, empowered with the technical skills to work, serve, and lead in creative and Christian communities. Students will be mentored as filmmakers, media artists, and content leaders equipped to tell 21st century audio-visual stories from a Christian worldview.

Media Arts courses in this program are delivered primarily through competency based online courses. Students will be encouraged by mentors and fellow-students in forums and weekly critiques as they develop their talents.
