Welcome to the Cinematic Arts and Technology Department at California State University Monterey Bay.

We offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cinematic Arts and Technology.

Our hands-on program prepares students for careers in film, broadcast, and interactive media across commercial, independent and community sectors.

Courses develop skills and experience in all facets of media making, including: directing, writing, producing, editing, sound design, visual design, animation, motion graphics, interaction design, and mobile media.

Cinematic Arts and Technology students are innovative and socially responsible media makers. We prepare tomorrow's professionals with the cultural and historical understanding of media practice needed to succeed in the current technologically dynamic and global media environment.

Our graduates continue to graduate programs in areas such as media, film, design, art, and education. Others enter independent and commercial industry. Both paths have led our alumni to successful, professional careers.
