We are the Department of Theatre, Film, and Media arts, formed from The Department of Theatre and the Film Studies Program in 2021.

We are a vibrant, active community dedicated to the education and training of filmmakers, theatre artists, and film and theatre scholars. Students receive hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art facility: behind the camera, on stage, and in design studios. We produce a regular season, featuring fully realized main stage productions and showcases for student filmmakers.

In addition to our season, we regularly invite guest artists and scholars to work with our students. The Wexner Center for the Arts compliments our own work with innovative offerings of cutting-edge film and performing artists from around the world. And we offer diverse ways for our students to connect with the film and theatre professions through internships and international opportunities.

Our department draws on the research and teaching expertise of internationally recognized faculty from departments across the arts and humanities. Our faculty conduct research and create projects which contribute to the enrichment of the university and to the broader fields of theatre and film. It offers people near and far, opportunities for education and collaboration.
