The Department of Film & Television offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Film and Television. This BFA emphasis provides training at a professional skill level, culminating in a comprehensive review that requires successful completion of numerous film/TV projects, varying in styles from fiction to documentary. The emphasis is designed so that students will progress through the semesters as a cohort group. Undergraduates will not only work on their own projects but also will assist on group projects such as our episodic web series. Students will graduate with both a theoretical and historical perspective, as well as a hands-on experience in film and television production. This prepares students to begin their careers with entry-level positions in film or television, start their personal creative work or continue their studies in a graduate program. Consult the College of Arts & Media at for more information.
