Without a doubt, there is a need for skilled professional storytellers in creative media. Since TV and motion picture production is among America's top resources, it's no surprise that it is a pillar for diverse industries.
Learn from those who know film production best. Our veteran faculty will guide you through writing screenplays and storytelling structures. Earning your MA in Film and Creative Media won't take long, but you can bet that it will be rigorous — and rewarding. Discover the intricacies of film theory or take on an internship opportunity. At the end of your studies, you will have built a portfolio with a screenplay and production plan. As you work to advance your creative career, you may even decide to pursue a doctorate in Film Studies — a natural next step.
Applicants to the graduate program must submit the following:
The tuition cost does not include program fees or equipment purchasing fees. While most of the gear will be provided for first year students on a loan/check out basis, it is required that students buy a MacBook Pro loaded with filmmaking software. You can choose to buy one through the university in your first semester in the program.
Also note that each student is responsible for costs of their own productions.
Both our deeply connected faculty and our experiential learning opportunities offer myriad ways for you to form relationships with leaders in the industry. These connections will serve and support you throughout your career.
