Covering a broad range of topics and disciplines, students take core courses in narrative film production, screenwriting, editing, directing, cinematography, producing, sound design/mixing, documentary, film history and film theory. Upper division students are then given the opportunity to specialize in their preferred disciplines – culminating in professional internships and collaborative capstone film productions.
