The long-term survival and accessibility of moving image materials—film, video, and digital—depends on experts who manage collections, implement technological solutions, and shape public policy. The Masters of Arts program in Moving Image Archive Studies (MIAS) at the University of California, Los Angeles prepares future archival professionals to lead the field and to meet the challenges of protecting, preserving, and making accessible moving images in all formats.
Offered jointly by the Department of Information Studies and the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media, in cooperation with UCLA Film & Television Archive, MIAS was the first university-based program of its kind in North America. MIAS provides hands-on training in the context of a broader education that combines aesthetic judgment, historical knowledge, awareness of social and cultural relevance, and familiarity with new technologies.
UCLA Film & Television Archive is also proud to host an annual boot camp for incoming MIAS students. Learn more about the boot camp, its activities, and the Archive's interest in the next generation of moving image archivists on our blog.
