School of Film

There's a story you need to tell, an image you've imagined, or a cinematic discovery or technique you'd like to explore. Whether your medium is animation or digital video and film, the programs in the School of Film are dedicated to helping you bring your ideas to life. You'll work closely with award-winning faculty and other creative students to develop your skills, understand the rich history of your medium, and express your personal vision as you immerse yourself in a challenging and rewarding career.

Interested in combining creative studio courses in film, animation and writing with intensive study of the history, aesthetics and social implications of film? Then a BA in Film & Media Studies from our Division of Liberal Arts might be for you.

Do you have a passion for screenwriting, story structure and character development? If so, the Writing for Film & Television concentration in the Creative Writing BFA program could be just what you need to develop your visual storytelling and scriptwriting skills.
