The Studio is actively involved in supporting UMBC’s Media and Communication program through teaching and internships. Courses in the New Media Studio allow students to be involved in immersive, authentic projects that are grounded in the MCS department’s historical, social, and theoretical analysis of media. For example, students in MCS/ART 395 Television Production Techniques produce the UMBC In the Loop series.
Studio-based faculty teach courses in a number of disciplines, including:
- MCS 484 Production Fellows
- MCS/ART 395 Television Production Techniques
- MLL495/695 Intercultural Video Production
- MLL406/606 History and Theory of Intercultural Media.
Academic support services offered through the Studio also include lecture and event recording. The Studio manages UMBC’s iTunes U site, a service that allows students convenient access to recorded academic content through Apple’s iTunes music store.
