Degree requirements for the B.A. in cinema and media studies will be available summer 2018.
For both the B.A. and B.F.A. degrees, students spend their first two years learning the fundamental craft of cinema production in our narrative-based program.
B.F.A in Cinema Production
- A production-intensive filmmaking degree that allows students to gain a deeper education in one discipline of cinema production and a broader grounding in art forms related to cinema arts.
- Junior and senior B.F.A. students select a concentration for advanced practice - directing, producing, editing, cinematography or sound - and conclude their degree with a thesis film as their capstone project.
- B.F.A. students are required to complete 129 credits. For a comprehensive list of program requirements, see the B.F.A. degree requirements.
B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies
- A production-oriented filmmaking degree that allows students more flexibility in structuring their education, with fewer courses in the major, and no thesis film requirement.
- With greater flexibility students can pursue study abroad opportunities, double-major, or complete their degrees in less than four years, making it a good option for transfer students.
- B.A. students are required to complete 120 credits. For a comprehensive list of program requirements, see the B.A. degree requirements.
