Media Arts

The Media Arts major at Antioch College is founded on the notion that media arts are inherently interdisciplinary, social pursuits. Courses in media arts integrate history and theory, a critical engagement with the field, and the skills necessary to make innovative, creative work. Though the media arts major does not track students into specialization, they can study any or all aspects of media arts taught at Antioch College: photography, video, animation, sound and new media.

The skills acquired in Media Arts courses help students—majors and non-majors alike—to find exciting co-op jobs, where they apply their media arts knowledge while working for innovative media professionals. They also apply their technical skills, which then continue to grow as students resume their studies on campus. Recent Media Arts co-ops include work for Skywalker Studios, Ken Burns, The Kitchen, Fraenkel Gallery, Chicago Public Radio, and many more. Additionally, Antioch’s own WYSO—a NPR affiliated radio station renowned for excellent journalism, original programming, and community engagement—gives students myriad opportunities for practical experience through the Miller Fellowship program, the Community Voices course, and beyond.

Whether students choose to major in Media Arts, self-design a media-rich major, or simply take a course or two, Media Arts courses grow their technical and intellectual capacity to think and work with media as they creatively engage the world.

Literature

The literature major at Antioch College is intended to encourage students to read widely, to think broadly, and to communicate clearly and effectively about literature.

Students who major in literature will be required to take six courses. The first of these is LIT 210, which has been designed as a reading survey of the English literary tradition that is oriented towards majors in this and related fields within the humanities. All literature majors will become conversant with a variety of basic methodologies and strategies for the appreciation and critical analysis of literary texts by encountering them in regular coursework as well as in the LIT 299 course, which will provide students with an overview of current literary theory. Students will also be required to complete a senior project under the guidance of the literature faculty, who will help students to craft and produce a substantial research or creative project within the discipline. In addition, students will be encouraged to work cross-disciplinarily within the humanities through the 210 series, which will provide students with a foundational introduction to the related disciplines of history and philosophy. Students across these disciplines will reconvene in the senior seminar, which is designed to put these students in conversation as they formulate their independent senior projects and practice the art of intellectual collaboration. The major is extremely flexible and is designed to respond to individual students’ interests and needs; in collaboration with their advisors, students who major in literature will assemble the remaining seven courses from electives within the discipline.

History

The history major is intended to provide students with an understanding of the major events, forces, and principals of the past in order to gain an understanding of how societies and cultures change over time. History majors will learn to use a variety of sources of historical information including historical texts, visual documents, and oral histories to develop accounts of past events. History majors will also explore the complex ways in which the past influences the present, as well as how the past persists into the future. They will cultivate such vital skills as writing, research, data collection and analysis, critical thinking, questioning, and the organization and presentation of complex materials. History majors become experts in making well-supported, meaningful written claims, and arguments and in communicating with a variety of audiences. This major is supported by the other humanities majors.
