Occidental College’s Film & Media Studies Program combines critical studies, digital production, screenwriting, documentary studies, study abroad opportunities, and industry internships. Graduates are not only technically savvy, but also critically and socially engaged—understanding that media production and consumption are not simply matters of entertainment and box office but also constitute powerful social and ideological realms both locally and globally. The Film & Media Studies program is pioneering in its curricular partnerships with Art History and Studio Arts. These three distinct, but resonant programs are partners within a larger Art History and Visual Arts Department, linking the still comparatively young histories of film, electronic, and digital media to the aesthetic, historical, and cultural traditions of other global visual practices (painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking and the like). Film & Media Studies at Occidental is distinctive for the liberal arts college experience it affords in Los Angeles, permitting students to approach media studies and production from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students and faculty are proud of the diverse range of fictional, documentary, and experimental/new media work that is both theorized and created within our program.

Situated in the Bay Area, CCA’s Writing and Literature Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to cultivate their potential in an inspiring and intensive studio environment while earning their bachelor of arts. Integrated into one of the country’s premier art schools, students are able to approach writing as a living art alongside artists and designers who are passionately engaged in making. Because of the program’s intimate size, students collaborate closely with a diverse faculty of actively publishing writers. In addition to courses focused on the craft of writing and the analysis of literature, students have access to courses in fine arts, design, visual and critical studies, community arts, and diversity studies, providing an exceptional range of perspectives and approaches that invigorate the writing process. The program’s comprehensive curriculum and engaged faculty challenge students to think critically and develop their individual voices. Writing workshops provide training not only in traditional prose and poetry but also in drama, the graphic novel, screenwriting, improvisation, and more. Students leave the program with a polished manuscript in the genre of their choice as well as a significant piece of literary criticism.

The Protagonist is the Prime Mover of the effort to achieve the Story’s Goal. The Antagonist is the Chief Obstacle to that effort. In a sense, Protagonist is the irresistible force and Antagonist is the immovable object. The Protagonist represents our Initiative, the motivation to change the status quo. The Antagonist embodies our Reticence to change the status quo. These are perhaps our two most obvious human traits – the drive to alter our environment and the drive to keep things the way they are. That is likely why the Archetypes that represent them are usually the two most visible in a story.
