The Film Studies program provides guidance to our students from accomplished research and film production faculty, real world experience through hands-on internship practicums, and opportunities for success beyond the program for our graduates. The B.A. in Film Studies with Emphasis in Production offers an immersive curriculum in film production, spanning from writing and cinematography to audio engineering and field production. The program combines rigorous technical instruction with aesthetic, historical, and theoretical topics that inspire you to find innovative ways to express yourself through film. Working with established filmmakers, media artists and scholars, our film production students develop their own personal craft and vision as a filmmaker. At each stage of the curriculum students exercise and demonstrate their skills and creativity through class projects. This learning process culminates in the senior film project that serves as the central piece of the graduate’s portfolio. Recent graduates have gone on to careers in the TV/motion picture industry, independent filmmaking, advertising and other areas of digital media production.

In addition, students must complete all College of Arts and Science and University graduation requirements, including University general education.
