Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The major in Film Production is for students who desire to pursue a career in film, video, or commercial production. The program is designed to enable students to work in leadership and support aspects of filmmaking during development, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution. Film production majors will become familiar with five major aspects of both narrative and documentary filmmaking, including the following: directing, producing, screenwriting, field production, and post production. Students will work on collaborative projects that stimulate greater self-awareness and accountability to a team. Creation of a robust portfolio is a cornerstone of successful completion of the program.


The Film Production Internship of 300 clock hours is required of all film production majors before being eligible for senior-level courses. Fulfillment of this requirement can include customary employment in the field or significant non-coursework projects in the visual arts. It is the student’s responsibility to seek and make all arrangements toward obtaining acceptance into this internship. The School of Visual Art and Design assists in the process but does not guarantee acceptance into any position or internship. This valuable experience in production will give the student a perspective on the workplace environment as well as valuable job references.
