Film and New Media Studies 401. Senior Seminar

This is the capstone course for Film and New Media Studies majors. Each seminar will focus on one or more aspects of film, new media and/or other creative industries. Although topics will vary from year to year, the seminar is fundamentally project-based insofar as it is designed to provide students with both the guidance and autonomy necessary to design and complete a capstone project that is meaningful to them – academically, creatively, professionally. In addition to the capstone project, students will co-facilitate at least one seminar meeting and will be expected to participate actively in the intellectual and creative community of the seminar both in class and online. Students will also complete an inventory and self-assessment of the knowledge, experience and expertise they have developed throughout their coursework in order to identify connections between their academic and professional skill sets, and to help them to leverage their experiences as Film and New Media Studies majors in their post-Wheaton pursuits effectively and intentionally.
