UCLA gets grant for master's in moving image archive studies

The National Endowment for the Humanities has presented the UCLA Film and Television Archive with a two-year grant of $138,234, as well as an additional $110,000 in matching funds.

Grant will finance the launch of a master’s degree program in moving image archive studies, the first such grad program in North America.

The degree, limited to a maximum of 10 students each year, will be offered by UCLA’s Dept. of Film, Television and Digital Media and the Dept. of Information Studies. Money will also allow for fellowships.

Moving image archive studies builds upon existing academic programs in film and television as well as library and information studies. Additional courses in fundamental aspects of archival practice including preservation, restoration and conservation will be taught by a combo of academic scholars and top-level preservationists.

The program will fully assemble the first full student class in fall 2002.
