Chair's Message

Welcome to the RTA School of Media. 

RTA has been highly regarded as a leader in media education for well over half a century. The world of media is rapidly changing, and the RTA School of Media is changing with it. Offering four unique programs, this is a place where creativity is nurtured, thinking is challenged, innovation is fostered, and leadership skills are developed. RTA’s mission is to set the standard for media education and to provide our students with an outstanding and rigorous education in media production and media art, supported by a depth of interdisciplinary practice and critical thinking in media and cultural studies, business, and liberal arts. We believe that students learn best when they are provided with opportunities and activities that inspire them to engage in their education, and experience intellectual, cultural, and personal growth. Here, students will be challenged to create, lead, and innovate, and upon graduation, they will be well prepared to join the ranks of RTA’s esteemed alumni of leaders and artists who continue to shape the future of media.
