Master’s (12 to 30 months) and Doctorate (24 to 54 months)

The program’s academic territory therefore extends from documentary cinema through video art to fiction as well as from documentary photography to abstract experiences. In this sense, cinema and photography cannot be analyzed merely as media but rather as diverse, unique content that can be generated, transmitted and broadcast using media and forms that are also diverse and unique (35mm, 16mm, television, digital media, movie theaters, paper, Internet, etc). The fields of cinematography and photography therefore involve exploration of their respective historical trajectories through the esthetic movements and authors that punctuate their centennial existences. Technical, heuristic and artistic aspects of the production of cinematography and photography are also examined in activities involving research and production related to communication, arts and the humanities.
