MA in English (online programs) #online #ma #degree


#

The MA in English online programs function as professional or self-designed MA in English degrees. These degrees are primarily for students who intend the MA to be the terminal degree in preparation for a career or profession such as high school or middle school English teaching, two-year college teaching, freelance or professional writing, or editing and publishing.

We offer three tracks for the MA in English (online):

For those involved in or preparing for middle school English teaching, high school English teaching, AP teaching, two-year college teaching, or dual-enrollment programs (such as Ohio’s College Credit Plus program, among others).

For those interested in professional/technical writing careers in business and industry, or those interested in teaching professional writing and rhetoric at two-year colleges.

Features of our MA in English online programs:

  • Earn your entire degree online in a program designed to be taught and learned online.
  • Specialize in your areas of interest with faculty who are expert teachers and experts in their fields.
  • Our programs are perfect for distance learners from anywhere on the globe. (For local students, some courses can be taken face-to-face if the student chooses.)
  • Move at your own pace through your degree program; most students take one or two courses per semester, but up to three per semester is manageable.
  • Learn during your available time; courses don’t meet at a specific time of day or on specific days during the week, so they’re perfect for those currently working or with otherwise busy schedules.

INTERESTED IN ANY OF OUR PROGRAMS?

The Department also offers graduate certificate programs in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) (offered only face-to-face). A student can earn such a certificate alongside the MA degree.

For students interested in an MA degree with a thesis project, see the MA in Literary and Textual Studies . a face-to-face degree program designed for those interested in literary and textual studies, teaching, possible PhD programs, digital humanities, etc.

Master’s in Film and Media Production

Overview of our MA in Film and Media Production

The Academy makes the accelerated schedule possible by creating an extended academic year, allowing students to complete three full-length semesters in one calendar year.

New York Film Academy MA degree programs are offered only at our Los Angeles campus.

Throughout the filmmaking MA program each student writes, shoots, directs, and edits eight films, and works on at least 20 more.

ONE-YEAR ACCELERATED MA

The New York Film Academy Master of Arts (MA) in Film & Media Production is a three semester accelerated graduate program. Designed to educate aspiring content creators, it is a hands-on, total immersion, professional course of study. Each student will create eight of their own film media projects in an array of formats and genres. They will work in collaboration on their classmates’ projects on at least 20 more. The capstone of the MA Film and Media Production program is a written thesis paper exploring the ideas and themes that are studied during the course of the entire program. MA students will have opportunities to develop and deepen their thesis papers in the second semester of their studies in Thesis Development class, under the expert guidance of NYFA’s professionally active faculty. Students will then progress to finalize their thesis work in the third semester, in Thesis Review.

Film and media production is constantly evolving in the 21st century — and so is the New York Film Academy’s filmmaking Master’s program. NYFA’s filmmaking MA program provides creative visual storytellers with the skills needed to thrive and succeed. The intensive curriculum challenges students, develops their skills, and prepares them for the new and evolving production world of today. Students will gain experience shooting their projects on the newest in HD, film, and digital equipment, from Canon 5D to Red Dragon, as well as classic film cameras like Panavision and Arriflex.

FILMMAKING MA: SEMESTER ONE OVERVIEW

MA Filmmaking students begin their immersion in film production through a series of intense classes in directing, screenwriting, cinematography, and editing. These classes support a number of short film productions that quickly put students’ skills into practice and assist them with developing proficiency in the overall production process. Each student will direct four short film/media projects in the first half of the semester.

Students will also develop their leadership and collaborative skills through fulfilling the essential roles of Director of Photography, Assistant Camera Operator, and Gaffer (Lighting Technician) on the films of their classmates.

Dialogue production is explored in depth in the second half of the semester while classes in directing, screenwriting, and editing continue. The final project of the semester is the digital dialogue film, which students will write, direct, and edit.

Throughout the semester students are immersed in a course about the changing formats of media production in today’s entertainment marketplace. This course prepares them to undertake production of their thesis film in semester two either as a short film or as a new, still developing format, such as webisode, or content for mobile applications.

The combination of these classes will prepare students for the second semester and production of their Thesis Projects.

LEARNING GOALS

  • Art, aesthetics, and technique of visual storytelling including directing, cinematography, and editing.
  • Fundamentals of film production and digital editing.
  • Survey and examination of contemporary media formats and distribution vehicles from a content creator’s perspective.
  • Fundamental training in acting and directing actors.
  • Immersion in screenwriting craft.
  • Develop an ability to collaborate with — and lead — a student film crew.

PRODUCTION GOALS

  • Write, direct, and edit four short film/media projects.
  • Crew as cinematographer, gaffer, and/or assistant camera on approximately 12 additional films.
  • Write a short film script with dialogue.
  • Write, direct and edit a dialogue film.
  • Successfully complete Production Lab exercise.

FILMMAKING MA: SEMESTER TWO & THREE OBJECTIVES

The second semester of the Master of Arts in film and media production program challenges students to develop their craft artistically and technically, and to progress beyond their earlier achievements with the medium. Building upon the filmmaking foundations learned in the previous semester, students continue with their directing, screenwriting, cinematography, and editing classes.

Film Production Lab Two, an intensive in the field production class, provides instruction in all of these areas through a series of “in the field” productions. The development of professional on-set conduct, leadership, and collaborative skills are also rigorously developed in this class.

The branding and marketing required to make an entrance into the crowded contemporary media field is studied at length prior to production of the thesis project. This allows students time to acquire any provisions they need to successfully promote the project.

The last film project of the filmmaking MA is the Final Film: a single production of up to 15 minutes in length, or multiple shorter media projects. It may be a short film intended for film festivals and distribution which incorporates all of the disciplines instructed throughout the semester, or a new format as studied in the Media and Society class. Current examples include webisodes, branded entertainment, short TV pilots, or commercials. The students’ ambitions and capabilities as evidenced in the thesis project are expected to increase from the first semester projects. Students will also expand their knowledge of production and collaborative abilities through acting as crew members on five of their classmates’ productions.

Intensive classes in post-production assist the student not only with completing the final steps of the filmmaking process, but also with developing an ability to give and receive editorial and creative feedback on their project.

LEARNING GOALS

  • Advance in proficiency in the fields of directing, editing, and cinematography.
  • Develop an increased ability to produce short films at a higher level.
  • Advance in proficiency in collaboration and leadership skills.
  • Acquire a comprehension of branding and marketing as required to promote the thesis project.
  • Develop an ability to give and receive constructive editorial and creative feedback on a project.

PRODUCTION GOALS

  • Direct and edit a thesis project of up to 15 minutes in length (shot on 16mm film, 35mm film, or High Def).
  • Develop proficiency with the second semester equipment package.
  • Participate as a principle crew member in five fellow students’ films.
  • Direct or DP a Film Production Lab Two project.

FILMMAKING MA: YEAR-END SCREENINGS

The thesis project will be presented in a movie theater for an invited audience. Students are responsible for inviting all guests. This public screening is not part of the formal evaluation process, but serves as a celebration of the students’ progress and achievements thus far.

Philosophy and Religion Degree Programs – Department Information #ba #philosophy,ba #religious

Philosophy Religion

Questions?

Philosophy explores the nature of the world, the basis of human values, and foundations of reason. Philosophy also offers the challenge of interpreting the work of thinkers who have created our intellectual traditions. Students approach these issues through study of both historical literature and contemporary developments.

The study of Western and Eastern religious traditions introduces students to a major influence on all civilizations. Journalists, diplomats, and government specialists benefit from a serious consideration of the inner workings of the religious ethos of civilizations. Daily events remind us that there is no more motivating factor in the culture of nations than ardently held religious belief. A thorough understanding of the modern world requires familiarity with its religious heritage. American University’s Washington, DC setting is advantageous for the study of religion, with national offices and centers for many religions. The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area also offers a variety of courses in philosophy and religion that are available to American University students.

Why Study Philosophy or Religion?

Students often want to know the practical value of studying philosophy or religion. In other words, how will it help you in the future? What jobs are available for philosophy and religious studies majors? What if you want to continue on to graduate school, but don’t want to teach philosophy or religion?

The study of philosophy or religion helps students develop valuable skills leading to work in any number of fields. Studying philosophy or religion provides excellent preparation for graduate study in many disciplines and areas of study.

Check out a short piece from NPR on the need for philosophers engaged in public debate here .

Career opportunities

Students graduating with majors in philosophy or religion have chosen careers in law, medicine, social work, the ministry, computer science, environmental protection, human rights, journalism, communication, government, business, education, race relations, and applied ethics.

New studies have also shown that degrees in the Humanities, especially Philosophy, have great returns on investment .

Graduate school

Students have pursued graduate study in philosophy, religious studies, theology, history, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, medicine, law, economics, public health, literature, and education.

Intellectual development and skills

Philosophy and religion courses are ideal for students who want to develop and improve writing and analytical skills. Students of philosophy or religion become more aware of themselves and the world around them. By raising questions that explore the basic principles of existence and ultimate human concerns, the study of philosophy or religion helps students develop many skills such as the ability to

  • reason clearly
  • extract what is essential from large amounts of information
  • understand and analyze complicated texts
  • develop a well-structured argument
  • express ideas in a clear and persuasive manner
  • solve problems

Why Study Philosophy in DC?

Our location in the heart of DC provides:

  • Easy access to Smithsonian Institutions, museums, national monuments, and the Library of Congress
  • A wealth of varied and diverse internship and service opportunities with the federal government and non-profit organizations
  • Opportunities to see and participate in political life and history as it happens

Why Choose AU?

At American University, our graduate and undergraduate programs prepare students to enter into the field of professional philosophy or many fields of postgraduate education. Besides teaching the classics of historical and contemporary philosophical thought and important philosophical developments, many classes are devoted to the application of philosophy to issues concerning biomedicine, environmental protection, human rights, the media, business, and race relations. Alumni of our BA program pursue graduate work not only in philosophy but also in other fields such as history, psychology, linguistics, computer science, anthropology, and literature. Many positions in science and industry require the analytical skills gained through the study of philosophy. In addition, the Philosophy program emphasizes clear thinking, accurate writing, and problem solving as well as the application to today’s practical problems. These skills are excellent preparation for further study toward law, medicine, social work, the ministry, and other professional careers.

What Is Philosophy?

The best way to find an answer to this question is to take one or two philosophy courses (as part of your general education requirements). However, for those of you looking for an instant answer, philosophy is the study of ideas, whether moral, legal, religious, or aesthetic. Philosophers explore the nature of the real world, the basis of human values, and the foundations of reason. Students at American University approach these issues by studying texts from different periods as well as from different regions. For example, students study both historical literature and contemporary developments in Western and Asian philosophy as well as other traditions such as the Latin American and African.

What Is Alibaba?

The Challenges

The world is going mobile, and Alibaba is competing for China’s smartphone users with new rivals. In its search for growth, Alibaba is forging into new businesses — and bumping into powerful players like Chinese banks and regulators. And will U.S. investors buy the IPO of a company that is still largely unknown to them?

SELLING THE ALIBABA STORY

Alibaba’s IPO is the largest in the world. China’s e-commerce market is still going strong and expectations for Alibaba are high. Still, Alibaba is facing a slew of new business challenges.

THE RACE TO GO MOBILE

China’s 600 million-plus Internet users are migrating to smartphones, setting off a scramble among the country’s Internet giants. Alibaba’s toughest rival is Tencent. which runs the WeChat mobile messaging application, with 355 million users. The companies are spending billions of dollars to invest in businesses that can help them compete.

The Tangled Web of the Chinese Internet

NEW FRONTIERS

The newest frontier for Alibaba is financial services. You can use Alibaba’s Alipay payments app to buy theater tickets and pay for taxis. You can also use it to invest in a money-market fund. That fund, called Yu’e Bao, has already collected $87 billion in assets. China’s banks and regulators are starting to get alarmed.

FAKES

Many brands say Alibaba’s sites — particularly Taobao — are rife with counterfeits. That could be awkward for the company, as it readies its global IPO. Alibaba says it spends millions of dollars a year battling fakes, and some merchants say Taobao has gotten faster at taking down suspect listings.

A fake Dahon bike and fake SylvanSport campers were listed on Taobao.com. The companies

Super Cheap Car Rental Announces The Winner of It’s “Not So New Car Giveaway Selfie Contest” – ABC6 – Providence, RI and New Bedford, MA News, Weather

Super Cheap Car Rental Announces The Winner of It’s “Not So New Car Giveaway Selfie Contest”

Posted: Monday, November 30, 2015 8:19 PM EST

California Car Rental Company Gives Away a 2006 4-door 5-passenger Toyota Corolla

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2015

In 2014, Super Cheap Car Rental announced their Not So New Car Giveaway Selfie Contest to offer their customers a chance to win a 2006 4-door 5-passenger Toyota Corolla. This month, they are thrilled to announce the winner. Congratulations to Sarah Jane Cass for winning the Not So New Car Giveaway!

The Not So New Car Giveaway was held for loyal customers of Super Cheap Car Rental as a way to show their gratitude for the community that has collected around the company. Cass, who rents from Super Cheap with every visit to L.A. posted her selfie and won the prize by popular vote via Facebook. We spoke with Cass to get her thoughts on the big win and why she chooses to rent with Super Cheap.

I had nightmares in the past with big car rental companies, explains Cass. She contrasts her experiences of renting from big corporations with the friendly, no surprise experience of Super Cheap rentals. It was what I expected. I had really lovely email conversations about pricing and what it would include before I booked. I just didn t have any surprises and having zero excess charges I think it s a really great plus, as well.

Cass began renting from Super Cheap when she was staying with her friend in Los Angeles. She discovered that in the fast pace, expansive metropolis of LA, it was easier to drive than to take public transit for the month she was there. To avoid the exorbitant amounts of big corporate companies, her friend recommended that Cass take advantage of Super Cheap s affordable long-term rates. During that time, she learned that the benefits of Super Cheap are more than just affordability. She explained her first rental as a very lovely experience and described how they [Super Cheap agents] checked in two weeks later to see how the rental car was doing and if I had any problems. Cass has been renting from Super Cheap ever since.

Enjoy the Corolla, Sarah!
