  • Objectives
    The School of Filmmaking is first and foremost an arts conservatory, preparing both our
    undergraduate and graduate students for careers in the moving image arts and industries.
    We offer a four-year undergraduate program in motion-picture production, as well as a two-year
    master’s program in film music composition. The faculty of the School of Filmmaking consists
    of film and television artists-in-residence as well as professional scholars, all of whom are
    dedicated to instilling in our students the importance of telling stories of value and worth. We are
    committed to nurturing the “complete” filmmaker ― a storyteller of vision and insight who
    knows and appreciates the myriad components that are essential to the creation of the entire
    spectrum of moving images: whether fiction or nonfiction, animated or live-action, series
    television, music videos, commercials, industrial shorts, or other new media. We are a training
    ground for young artists, giving them the freedom to explore their creative visions within a
    carefully structured environment that attempts to mirror the collaborative creative process of the
    professional world. The relationship between our faculty and students is one of “masterapprentice,”
    involving close collaboration in all aspects of the development, production and
    exhibition of the students’ digital video and film projects.
  • Course description
    The Undergraduate Program in Filmmaking
    The BFA program in filmmaking is open to students who wish to pursue program emphasis in the areas of animation, cinematography, directing, picture editing and sound design, producing, production design, or screenwriting. At the same time, the School expects students to have or to develop a strong base in the liberal arts and humanities, as well as the physical and social sciences, with additional intensive coursework in film history, aesthetics and criticism. With this in mind, the School of Filmmaking does not offer a College Arts Diploma to any student who does not already possess a BA, BM, BS, or BFA degree.
