Moving Image Archiving and Preservation M.A.
"Now in its second decade, MIAP has established a high standard for synthesizing theory and practice. Students engage in projects that use real collections and require collaboration with working archivists. Through internships, class assignments, and participation in professional organizations, our students develop a deep understanding of the field."
— Dan Streible, Associate Professor, Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP)
The Master of Arts degree program in Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) is a two-year, interdisciplinary course of study that trains future professionals to manage and preserve collections of film, video, digital, and multimedia works.
