Questions and Answers:

French mathematician Blaise Pascal said, “I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time.” It is a common misunderstanding that it is easier to write less. To make a compelling argument succinctly, it is often a greater challenge to write a little rather than to write a lot.

 

With this in mind, please answer the following two questions in a thoughtful, reflective, and compelling manner, strictly limiting your response for each to the word count specified.

  1. Provide a personal statement as to why you have chosen Media Production and explain what you have done that demonstrates why you are a good candidate for this program. Please include your areas of interest and where you see yourself working after graduating from the Media Production program. (300 words)
  2. Choose a favorite media product (from television, film, music, radio, theatre, or any other creative medium) and describe what makes it compelling for you and how you might adapt it to another media platform. (500 words)
