Home / Degree programs / Film (Film and Media Production)

By bringing their own unique stories to life, students pursuing a degree in film and media production develop a comprehensive and practical knowledge of digital media production, an awareness of the impact of media and entertainment on audiences and culture, and an understanding of the role of the artist in society.

Students in the concentration have access to digital cameras, lighting and sound equipment, post-production software and facilities, and other resources --- including talented and dedicated peer and faculty colleagues --- that will give them multiple opportunities to produce projects of exceptional quality.

In this degree program, students have a choice between three upper-division tracks of study: directing, producing/screenwriting and media technology (including cinematography, post-production and sound). Each course of study is supported by the degree-wide emphasis on ethical filmmaking practices, innovative creative expression and preparation for a career as an industry professional.

The program is offered by the School of Film, Dance and Theatre.
