There is a proposal to have Digital Cinema offered as a major at Southern Oregon University starting Fall of 2019. Currently a concentration within the Communications major, the new major would focus solely on film. Having pitched to the SOU Board of Trustees, Gay has two more meetings before everything is finanlized– one with the Provost Council and one with the Higher Education Coordination Commission this Spring.
Andrew Gay has worked for the last year to bring this program to the school. “I think there will be a lot of celebration in the community as a whole because we have gotten a lot of support for this program,” he said.
Editor’s note: This article was corrected to read that the major is proposed for Fall 2019. The program has not been pitched to the necessary parties and is still in its pitched form.
