It has been said that, collectively, the visual mass media represent the most important and widely shared context for the receipt of information and ideas in contemporary experience. We recognize the centrality of visual experience to everyday life and question the consequences of our passive consumption of visual media as both entertainment and information.
We invite you to do the same.
The goal of the FMST minor is for you to develop the critical skills necessary to analyze representation and experience as they are constructed by new and emerging visual technologies. The program seeks a balance between history, theory, and practice.
