Why This Major

The Film Program is dedicated to preparing you for a career as a creative leader in the film and television industry. 

Foundation courses combine with specialized courses that allow you to pursue the specific area of the entertainment business that interests you the most.

Whether you want to be a generalist and run your own film production company or specialize as a writer, director, producer, cinematographer, editor, or a hyphenate, your advisor and instructors will mold your advanced classes to achieve your individual goals.

Film students explore the language of cinema and the techniques for effective visual storytelling. 

You will learn the craft of filmmaking and combine it with their unique artistic world view and they will be challenged to prepare stories that resonate and linger. 

You will pitch, and write, and rewrite… and then most likely rewrite some more… until the idea is ready and production begins. At times it will be exhausting. It will often seem endless. But it will be worth it. Because it all starts with story . . . Your Story!
