The B.F.A. in Film Production focuses on visual storytelling and fosters the development of your creative voice and artistic expression in the context of a rigorous liberal arts education. This comprehensive program emphasizes a hands-on, project-based approach in which you will learn all the aspects of film production through the use of our state-of-the-art facilities and best industry practices. You will receive a solid foundation in all aspects of filmmaking under the guidance of award-winning filmmakers, many of who still work in the industry. At the end of the sophomore year, you choose an area of specialization in directing, cinematography, editing, sound design or production design. In the third year, you create a 10-minute Advanced Production project that involves collaborating with students from all the different areas of specialization. Your education culminates in the fourth year with the creation of a Thesis film that provides you with a professional portfolio piece to serve as a calling card to the industry.
