The programs of TRFT strive to prepare students for their career objectives in film, theatre, and broadcasting or in other capacities. The department provides a liberal arts approach that examines the long history and wide variety of media arts while teaching students to be analytical, imaginative, collegial problem-solvers, able to accommodate diversity and work together to achieve common goals.

The program also provides a strong professional education for students specifically seeking careers in media and performing arts and the many related fields of the entertainment and communications industry. We train students for careers as performers, directors, writers, producers, designers, technicians, and managers.

Our programs are production-oriented and offer training and experience in theatre, radio, television, film, and multimedia production as well as courses in history, research, and aesthetics of these media. Students can partake in the department’s full-time radio station, KSJS 90.5, which provides entertainment, sports, and community service to the Bay Area. The department also creates feature films through Spartan Film Studios, a full season of stage productions, and other faculty, staff, and student production projects.

Please explore this website to learn more about TRFT at SJSU, our rich curricular offerings, our active production program, and our accomplished students, faculty, and staff.
